Te Waonui for week ending Friday 2 March 2018

From Te Manu Korihi, 9:00 pm on 2 March 2018

Protestors marched down the main street of Dargaville this week in opposition at plans to build New Zealand's biggest chicken farm; beginners' classes in te reo Māori are attracting so many enrolments, many are full and some have hundreds of would-be students on their waiting lists; Te Puea Marae open its doors to local employers in an effort to find more jobs for the people it helps and MPs have rejected a petition calling for the government to exempt Māori land from the Public Works Act.
