    Papakura Community will March on the 25th March 09 lead by Whaitiaki. Papakura has been abused twice through this process, firstly by the Royal Commission and Secondly by the National Party. Papakura is at risk of lossing its Papakuratanga and must do this to protect its identity.

      if walk from the Domain you need to be by the little hill across from the grandstand by 10.15am for a 10.30am leaving time. Otherwise meet all the Hikois at the bottom of Queen St at 12noon.
