One year since eviction notice served at Ihumātao

From Midday Report, 12:46 pm on 23 July 2020

It's a year today since occupiers were delivered an eviction notice at the disputed land at Ihumātao in south Auckland.

Fletcher Building's plan to construct 480 homes there was halted as a result.

Talks have been happening over the course of the year to reach a resolution.

This morning, people gathered for karakia and korero at 8.20am – the time the eviction notice was served.

Qiane Matata-Sipu was there and is among those who leads Save Our Unique Landscape.

She spoke to Māni Dunlop.
