These new laws will give the Samoa Government too much power including giving them the right to interfere with families traditional right to choose their own Matais. The land of families which lie below the high water mark become public land without consulting the families. The Constitution of Samoa shall not be amended without the consultation with the people, which requires a formal discussion with our traditional government, as these changes affect our traditional rights as Samoans. Because the country is going through Covid 19 precautions we demand that all further activity be suspended regarding these proposed bills and amendments until at least 3 months after restrictions are lifted. There is no emergency requiring Parliament to rush these laws into existence.
