If you have been following this campaign and want to help,
please join SOUL 9-10am this Wednesday 3 Feb!
Show Auckland Council your opposition to SHA 62 at Ihumātao.

Foreign-owned company Fletcher has a hearing to get the Council consents and re-zoning needed to complete their purchase of the land.
If consent is granted, Fletcher will begin bulldozing and building on green space surrounding Ōtuataua Stonefields Historic Reserve. Consent is required
by Fletcher’s conditional purchase agreement, so let’s show council we don’t want this to go ahead!

We need a show of community opposition at SOUL’s family-friendly rally at the Council building next Weds 3 Feb at 9-10am
(Civic Building, 31-33 Manukau Station Rd)
More details on Facebook here & please invite your Facebook friends. SOUL can help you get to and from the rally — see our event page for pick up times or email us.

We also need as many supporters as possible in the Council chambers on the second hearing day Thursday 4 Feb, when SOUL will be calling up our mana whenua and other experts for submissions opposing Fletcher’s development on one of Auckland’s most precious cultural sites. See our website for background info
We really appreciate your support. Thank you!

Our next generation
will take a stand for the land:

Kids with SOUL show the t-shirts and banners they created during the school holiday program.
All excited and ready for Wednesday’s rally at the hearing.

Thanks so much to Rebecca Hobbs and Tosh Monsta for leading the holiday program!

SOUL (Save Our Unique Landscape) is led by a group of whānau residents in Ihumātao pā village and is inclusive of residents, ratepayers, community members and interested parties. As whānau members we are also mana whenua, whose families have lived here for many generations.

We believe that having a Special Housing Area (SHA) in Ihumātao will not contribute to making Auckland a liveable city, but destroy one of the few significant and unique historical, cultural, spiritual, social and environmental spaces we have left.
