An inquiry has found that the cause behind the high rate of child abuse and domestic violence amongst Maori is rooted in colonisation.
The first report of the $3 million Glenn Inquiry called the ‘People’s Report’ into social problems was released on Monday and a blueprint for change would be released later in the year.
The report points to widespread dysfunction in the courts, particularly the Family Court, and broken, poorly resourced and disconnected social services as barriers to dealing with the problem of abuse.
The testimony of 500 survivors, frontline workers and offenders was recorded to highlight the depth of the problem and calls for a national strategy.
The report says Maori culture holds tamariki and wahine in high esteem. However, European colonisation taught tangata whenua new ways of privileging men – rendering women and children as possessions and contributing to male violence against them.”
What a load of crap that is. If that was the case, then Europeans would be doing the same thing.
Only thing the maori learnt at this point is to live on the dole and ask for hand outs.

Press Release: Mana Party
MAORI TO LAY CLAIM AGAINST KIM DOTCOM FOR CUSTOMARY MINING RIGHTS
Saturday 31 May 2014
Customary Data Mining Rights bottom line issue, says Harawira
Te Tai Tokerau Maori are laying claim to their part of all Internet data under the Treaty of Waitangi.
Mana Party leader Hone Harawira said that “Knowledge and information isn’t owned by any one entity, and knowledge and information existed well before the Internet came along.”
“As a result, Northland Maori lay claim to their share of all of Kim Dotcom’s income he has derived from the Internet”.
An exact amount hasn’t been suggested, but talks are being scheduled.
“Public reports of income in excess of $200 million make Northland Maori believe that, our customary data mining rights can lay claim to a significant proportion of this”, Harawira said.
He added: “I do not believe this is going to stand in the way of the Internet Mana Party in the near future, but I do expect our customary data mining rights to be recognised before the election”.

BIG LOSER to you
Last night 8/2/2014 as I was walking past there was a young child (8 years old maybe) sitting on a stool out side.
WHY you ask.
The family was in having a feed inside(i guess he was under age). On my way home it got to me that they would give a stool and leave him outside (was raining).
I felt sad for the child (Samoa or Pacific islander at-least).
Never going there to support the place with morals like that.
As a shop owner I find the sales of this Psychoactive Substance killing the East end of town.
Reason I’m against it is.
1/ Sick of the rubbish left, Drug packets and the people empting their car.
2/ Sick of the abuse when they go around the back of the shop to go to the toilet (against the wall) (As there is no toilet in the green area).
3/ Sick of seeing them hop in their cars and then smoke the stuff before driving off.
4/ The language they use is driving the people that come to this end of town to buy from the shops.
5/ The green area in Warren street is just a place for them to smoke the stuff in public, They don’t care if there are families with kids, the users just light their bongs ( or empty the rubbish bins to find an empty can to use) smoke and use bad language to a point the families get up and leave.
6/ It should be illegal to use / smoke in public places.
7/ It should be banned in the CBD
8/ When it’s raining they stand under the veranda’s and smoke the stuff, it then drifts into the shop and stinks the shop out, Or we have to close the doors (lose customers for door shut or they are too scared to stop).
That’s my Rant LOL
Well I watched then checked the terms, The Ad is a total lie.
Found this as well on Whale Oil.
To be expected…Orcon and their new pal Kim Dotcom lie like flatfish
by Cameron Slater on October 4, 2013
I am an Orcon customer…but not for much longer. They have crawled into bed with a fugitive and convicted insider trader, and fraudster.
I thought that I’d shed some light on their supposed “unlimited” new plans that the fat Kraut is waxing lyrical over.
Krim Dot-Con has partnered with Or-Con and they are promoting their new offerings and
the idiot media lapped it all up
it says they are limiting the bandwidth…
If customers on unlimited plans download data in excess of Orcon’s estimates then all customers on unlimited plans may see download/upload speeds drop temporarily.
To make sure that people who are downloading heaps don’t adversely affect our fixed data plan customers we have two ‘pools’ of bandwidth. One for the people on the unlimited plan, one for all the rest. We have based the size of these “pools” on estimated average customer usage.
So if people on the unlimited plans start downloading more than we expect (especially during busy times like in the evening), all people in the unlimited pool may see speeds drop temporarily. This is done so that the usage by customers on unlimited plans doesn’t affect the speed and network performance of customers on fixed data plans.
They will also be shaping (which has been the subject of Fair Trading Act breaches for other companies)
And they have a “Fair Use Policy” that lets them kick you off – and still charge you an early termination fee. Lovely.
If, in Orcon’s sole opinion, your usage is so heavy that it materially exceeds estimated use patterns over any month or Orcon believes that your usage of our services will adversely affect the quality of the service received by other customers, then Orcon may (in its sole discretion):
- de-prioritise your access to the network;
- apply charges to your account for the excessive and/or unreasonable element of your usage;
- suspend or restrict access to your service; or
- terminate your service.
Where reasonable, Orcon will provide you with notice before suspension, restriction or termination. If we terminate your services and you have agreed to a fixed contract term you may have to pay the applicable early termination fee.
That, with the ridiculous claim that New Zealand has “Third World Internet”, shows this little campaign up for the stunt it is…unadulterated crap.
Oh for a media that actually resarches the claims of anyone associated with the Fat Kraut.
Love the name Krim Dot-Con and Or-Con LOL

ID 10 T’s to the max, Losers in other terms LOL
