Hillmorton Hospital needs a Kaupapa Maori inpatient ward
Hillmorton Hospital is looking at decommissioning the alcohol detox ward (Kennedy ward) to create another adult acute ward to cater to the rising needs of mental health in Christchurch. The CDHB are asking for submissions on what this ward should look like. We are putting forward a proposal for a Kaupapa Maori inpatient unit. Maori are almost twice as likely than non-Maori to commit suicide. Maori are four times more likely to develop schizophrenia than non-Maori. Maori are three times more likely to be admitted to hospital against their will. Some have called these statistics a "culture under siege". Providing a service that caters to Maori needs within Canterbury would be a really good start to begin reducing some of these disparities. Please sign and share to show your support for this awesome initiative. Arohanui!
Petition to Sam Papa
Say NO to the Committee's Plan!
Save Papa o Te Aroha Marae, Tokoroa
This Petition seeks to stop the creation of a Charitable Trust and the undermining of the current structure of Papa o Te Aroha Marae. The current Committee of the Tokoroa Catholic Maori Society : Tene Kereopa (President) Glennys Whyte,(Assistant Treasurer), Mark Mahutonga (Secretary), Prue Christie (Treasurer), Carey Taluta (Deacon) are seeking to create a new Charitable Trust with the intention of Trustees self appointing. Further it is the intention that the new entity will take the Lead for all Marae activities. We do not believe a new entity is required for the Marae and would like the integrity of Papa o Te Aroha to be retained and not be undermined by the creation of a Charitable Trust. It is unnecessary as the current structure of Papa o Te Aroha is an Incorporated Society. Incorporated Societies can apply for Charitable Status. The Incorporated Society is Driven by its members Not a Board of Trustees Why is Papa o Te Aroha Marae so important to this community? Because it was established through the Wairua (Spirit) of the Tokoroa Catholic Maori Society with Father Tuerlings and the support of the Hamilton Diocesan Bishop Edward Gaines in 1987. It was created to be a Community Marae to be used by all peoples to demonstrate the Catholic values of Aroha (Care and Attention), respect and charity to all. There is a Pou for all peoples within its walls in the great wharenui. Calling all to feel at home in the warmth of the ancestral representations. It is considered a very Holy site of ordination for the very first Catholic Maori Bishop, Bishop Takuira Max Mariu in 1988 by Bishop Edward Gaines. We seek support to preserve this Mauri and keep the integrity and Tapu o te Mana o Papa o Te Aroha free from violation. We DO NOT support the removal of Catholic or Maori in any way. We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge the Tokoroa Catholic Maori Committee to act now to Retain the Incorporated Society i.e. Tokoroa Catholic Maori Society as the only Governing Entity for Papa o Te Aroha Marae, and to cease all investigation and actions to create a new Charitable Trust.
Petition to Rt Hon. Jacinda Ardern
For Services to Free Speech: Elevate Sir Robert Jones to Lord Jones of Melling
Prime Minister, the undersigned agree that you must immediately relieve Sir Robert Jones of his knighthood for the unconscionable hate crime of telling the truth about Maori separatist extortionists, and elevate him to the peerage as Lord Jones of Melling, for services to liberty, honesty and not being so bloody precious.

Petition to New Zealand Government
Change the Coal-mines Act Amendment Act 1903
The NZ Government retains the rights to NZ rivers up to the point at the top of the water when it is at its fullest because of this law. Sign this petition to change the Law to not include rivers due to it not being 1903 anymore. The NZ people don't want to mine in rivers. We want to protect NZ rivers. This New Zealand Act is used as an excuse in all claims to stop private and Maori ownership of riverbeds even when there is no coal on the area of the river. Also if the Government think there is a small chance of driving a boat up a river mouth they will use this law to stop claimants.
