Construction = Destruction

Soon to be destroyed to make way for a motorway. To me, progress would mean not destroying natural environments, ancestral land and archaeological sites for a new highway. There were other options but no. The powers that be still see Maori land as exploitable, because to them it’s just sitting there doing nothing. Well it actually is doing something. It is preserving the land, flora and fauna and our people who lived and died on this land. Believe it or not, some people still hold things as sacred. The dead, the environment and the history of place are all sacred.
