Mana: Tax the rich to free the poor
Mana leader Hone Harawira says New Zealand has allowed the rich to take too much of the country’s wealth, and it’s time to take it back.
The former Te Taitokerau MP has released his policy prescription to take the seat back from Labour’s Kelvin Davis, starting with writing a constitution based on the Declaration of Independence He Whakaputanga and the Treaty of Waitangi.
He proposes to help the region’s jobless with a return to the project employment schemes of the past, saying if the government could pay for them 30 years ago, they can pay for them now.
"Tax the rich to free the poor. Lift everybody off the ground through community employment. Lift everybody off the ground through free education. Lift all of our people off the ground through free health and let the country start moving forward on that basis," Mr Harawira says.
