Bastion Point 35th Anniversary

  • Auckland

This Saturday will mark the 35th anniversary of the day Police and NZ Defence Force personnel invaded Bastion Point and evicted over 200 occupiers protesting against the Govt's housing development plan for Ngāti Whātua's land.

Today, Te Kāea spoke to the son of protest leader, Joe Hawke, who says it's important that Ngāti Whātua o Ōrākei's younger generations remember that significant moment in time.
