On the eve of ANZAC day 2006, the following article was published in the NZ Herald. It summarises the level to which NZer's have been hoodwinked into associating their identity with the crimes of Imperialists.
For Maori, it is even worse. Not too long after the end of the Land Wars, their military prowess was usurpped and perverted by their Imperialist enemy and their Kupapa collaborators, to make them a party to every reactionary war and police action against indigenous and woking class people the world over. The Solomons is only the latest.
Go and read the article. Go. Go now. Do it. You’ll feel more informed for it.
