Maori now want to own the water we drink which is every humans god given right to have free access to. If you need to go down this separatist road Moari, then maybe Pakeha can put a surcharge on Moari for using Pakeha owned resources. ie supermarkets, sporting facilities, schooling, shopping facilities.
I do personally agree with Moari though that John Keys should not be allowed to sell these assets, that belong to ALL New Zealanders.

At the zoo you can get a kid pulling faces at the zoo animals.Very brave actions from the other side of protective fencing etc. Mana is just as brave as the kid pulling faces at zoo animals.Please tell us how Hone expect Maori to adress future water damages if Maori get water rights. What about past water damage?And where in either the treaty, or NZ law does it give Maori water rights?Oh wait, Maori want all the money, but no responsibility or accountability!If Maori get water rights as a historical claim it will open up Maori to be held collectively responsible for every problem caused by water. Flooding, Droughts, even the Chirstchurch liquifaction! NZ consumers could even sue for low water levels in lakes/rivers pushing up electricity prices. Every insurance company payout for water related damage could be reclaimed from Maori.To own something one also needs to show some control. I would like to see Maori demonstrate some control of water, without dams, using traditional Maori methods.Under NZ law nobody owns the water so nobody can be deprived of water. It also allows the 'Act of God' so nobody is accountable for damage from water. Water ownership would change that.
