Me kotahi rānei te iwi nōna te mana ki te wai Māori i Aotearoa?
Koia te pātai i tētahi pānui i roto i te Weekend Herald i te Rāhoroi, me te whakatau anō, taihoa ake, ka whiu utu ngā iwi i te huringa o te kōrere wai.
I roto i taua pānui e puta ai te pātai mena rānei ka tohua tētahi iwi ngā wai Māori o te motu e whakahaere?
Na reira ka pēhea hoki ngā whakaaro o te heamana takirua mo te rōpū māngai a iwi mo tēnei take?
Ki Tā Mark Solomon, "its nonsense. There has never been a proposal put on the table by either side that iwi have the total right of veto against all water."
Kei te pānui hoki he tono kia koha atu he pūtea e ahei ai rātou te whakawhānui i ēnei kōrero ki ētahi atu niupepa, ko aua e mea ana a tōna wa ka totohe ngā iwi kia utua te tangata mo te whakamahi i te kōrere
E ai ki a Don Brash, "It's not racist at all, on the contrary what we're saying is the government itself is proposing a policy which is racist by giving a particular group based on race a right to allocate water. We think that's totally contrary to what everything New Zealand Stands for."
Nā te New Zealand Centre for Political Research te mana tuku i te panui-hoko nei, a, koinei te pānui hou o ngā pānui rua tekau mā tahi kua puta ki te motu mai i tērā Noema. Ko Don Brash, te Kaiārahi ō mua o te rōpu torangapu o Act nānā tonu i whiu korero ki Orewa i te tau 2010, ko ia hoki te kaimāngai o te panui.
Hei tā Mark Solomon. "show us where ever the government has said that they will give Maori the right of veto over water. Show whenever we have ever asked for a right of veto on water."
Ko te whakautu a Brash, "It is not misinformed and it is not nonsense. I mean the government has made it quite clear that they want to involve iwi in the decision making about the allocation of freshwater."
Ko wai ka mōhio he aha te hua ka puta i te pānui.
