Mana Party condones flag burning in Auckland

  • 23/07/2014

The leader of the Mana Party, Hone Harawira, has supported flag burning at a pro-Palestinian march in Auckland at the weekend.

Mana Party flags can be seen in photos next to burning Israeli and American flags. Thousands of people marched up Queen St on Saturday.

"I wish that Israel would get out of Gaza and let those people get by, by themselves," says Mr Harawira. "The kind of pressure that's been brought to bear on them, the New Zealand settler government brought to bear on the people of Parihaka."

Mana's partner, the Internet Party, has refused to comment.
