Hi neighbours - Hapū are ready to occupy Whakarongorua Maunga in the Utakura Valley to stop cell phone tower construction.
Hapū member Mori Rapana says "the mountain designated for the tower was sacred and steeped in history", with ancestral bones buried there. He says that "they're willing to fully occupy the land and get arrested so that it is left in all its glory for all generations to come".
What are your thoughts? Should another area be chosen for the cell phone tower? Is there enough being done to protect sacred sites?
