Here's some of the more interesting and insightful recent tweets about the Kermadec sanctuary issue. The most recent tweets are first. [To be updated]
I fully believe if Maori retain their rights to Kermadecs they will demonstrate their full care-taking responsibilities & ensure protection
It's still colonisation, even if it's green. Think Chagos Islands & now Kermadecs. Green world needs to sort out the justice bit too
There should be a marine sanctuary around the Kermadecs. One should not be imposed without Maori consultation & consent.
Greens can't have their cake and eat it too. Turning their backs on Maori over Kermadecs. Read this from @LloydBurr
@mvlgrimace A strange time when National promote conservation initiative while Māori support unsustainable extraction & worker exploitation.
@TeOhuKaimoana TOKM has done well to protect monetary value, but what of sustainability & labour practices? We as Māori should be leaders
So have the Green Partybeen playing token lip service to Maori and Te Tiriti o Waitangi in the past?#Kermadecs
Hi, as a white left dude, just wondering if my opinions on the Kermadecs go in the green, the red or the yellow bin. Rubbish day is Thursday
Is the Kermadecs issue worse than the foreshore and seabed that caused the formation of the Maori Party ?
@TheNationTV3 Morally they're about the same, impact = different, legally Kermadec is worse.
Dear @NZGreens, please reverse your support of the Kernadec Sanctuary. Of course we need such sanctuaries, but it cannot be done this way.
What I find amazing about the Kermadec sanctuary is how many of the leftists who support it are willing to put the Treaty second.
I'm not an active Green Party member, but i will actively leave if we don't sort our shit out over the Kermadecs.
Honestly, the Kermadecs issues are a gift for the Maori Party. Lots of media attention, a clear kaupapa Maori position, a real demonstration
Where does the Green Party stand? Do they prefer a sanctuary or do they want to honour Maoris treaty rights in regard to the Kermadecs?

Māori view of Kermadec by analogy w housing: You & I agree, we must do something for homeless. So, I will take your house & give it to them.
So hold on a moment. The Kermadecs stuff-up is somehow Labour's fault? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?
