Treaty of Waitangi Principles Criticised

From the collecton Treaty of Waitangi

The Auckland District Māori Council has become the first major Māori body to speak out against the government's five principles upon which it would act on the Treaty of Waitangi issues. Council chairman Dr Ranginui Walker says the government is working unilaterally, in direct breach of the partnership principles of the Treaty. He says he is upset about the process of drawing up of the principles, and the principles themselves.
