"Go to Hell" – Tinkerbell

Chris Finlayson has said “Go to Hell” to a bunch of illegal protestors.

Treaty Negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson says a group of Ngati Kahu protesters can “go to hell” if they think he’ll meet them after a group moved on to land near Taipa.

The protesters were evicted and arrested from Far North District Council land at Taipa last week.

But yesterday, they moved on to adjacent coastal land, owned privately by Aucklander Kevyn Male.

A group of more than 50 went on to the land about 1pm yesterday.

The move followed a picnic at a council reserve organised by businesswoman Dale Synott for local people who are sick of the continuing protest action.

Mr Finlayson was incensed when he found the protesters had changed tack from occupying land outside the Taipa Sailing Club to neighbouring land, he was incensed.

Asked about the reoccupation by the protesters who are led by brothers John and Wikatana Popata, Mr Finlayson said the Crown and iwi were already working out Treaty grievances.

Good on Tinkerbell. This is precisely how illegal land occupiers should be dealt with.
