Activists have moved onto land at Kaitaia Airport today
the occupation was a protest against a $100 million Treaty of Waitangi settlement, due to be ratified tomorrow

One of the occupation organisers Hone Popata said they would be occupying land beside the airport terminal, and all operations at the airport would be closed.
"We are in charge now," he said.
Finlayson's mates, the Popata bros have taken "charge" of Kaitaia Airport. More of the long term pandering of the Nats "Give them an inch..." comes home to roost.
Not a good couple of weeks for you, eh John Boy Key?
The professional stirrers have been far too quiet for a while since dishing out to Key a few years ago. Now they are setting up residence and are looking for more than an inch of the white man's mile.
Just like Raglan Golf Course and Bastion Point, we'll see spineless pandering pollies and local government wannabees rolling up to cater to their every need.
Time to stock up on popcorn.
