National GE Free Land March, 1st. October - 31st. October 2001
Kiaora Koutou, e nga kaumatua, e te whanau nui.
Ko Kei Munro toku ingoa. Ko Ngapuhi me Ngati Porou nga iwi.

The National GE Free Land March is going to Parliament to protest ! 
Helen Clarke is to announce whether she will extend the voluntary GE Free Moratorium by 31st. October 2001. Even if she does extend the Moratorium, this is not enough. We want a GE Free Aotearoa.  Don't 'tutu' around with our 'taonga' ! The tohu that represents GE Free Aotearoa will be brought by runners and walkers from Te Reinga Wairua (Cape Te Reinga), by all people who support this kaupapa.

Haere mai! Haere mai! Haere mai!

Join us for one of the most important events in our history.

Come and wrap the  Auckland Town Hall with a Banner.,

Put your walking shoes on and  walk with us.

Make an event happen in your town as we pass through.

Te Roopu Pounamu, Rangatahi Nations, Nga Wahine Tiaki o Te Ao, Green Party, N Z Charter of Health Practitioners,Permaculture in NZ, The Socialist Worker's Union, and many more !!!!  Will be there !

If you would like to co-ordinate in your area, provide accommodation, transport for the elderly, assist with food. We need fit runners to run the flags in various parts of NZ, accommodation, first aid, marshals,  koha all the way from the Cape to Parliament.

We want this to happen from Rakiura (Stewart Island) to Parliament as well.
