Brave show of Māori Party banners
Te Pati Māori president John Tamihere says it takes courage to host one of the party’s signs.
The party is reporting a high level of attacks on its election hoardings.
He says it’s not deterring people from showing their support.
“Because the way white folk are attacking us, that brings heat on your house possibly, but that’s the courage of people but you’ve got to take your hat off. They’re all working class houses, you can see that, and the traffic that’s coming in to host our signage is now significant given the way they’ve seen our hoardings beaten up,” Mr Tamihere says.
