Māori lawyers, midwives, social workers and academics have united to call on the government to stop taking Māori children.

An open letter has gained almost 10,000 signatures calling on the government to immediately stop taking Māori children.

Oranga Tamariki has come under pressure recently with how it is delivering to Māori, specifically with the uplift of Māori babies.
