Members of the Moerewa community in Northland are organising a march through the town on Friday, to support whanau affected by a dispute between the meat company AFFCO and the Meatworkers Union; The Moerewa Community Trust Chairman, Ngahau Davis, says if AFFCO and union bosses could see the faces of the community and the hurt being caused, they might be quicker to resolve the stand off; The head of Te Arawa Lakes Trust, Toby Curtis, says Waikato-Tainui has offered him some important advice to help avoid problems if his people want to set up a tribal parliament; The manager of a Blenheim marae says a major restoration project has resulted in local businesses including wineries, engaging with the marae.
