Kua hinga he rangatira o Ngāti Awa, o Te Waiāriki. Kua hinga he tino pou o te hunga kaimahi me te hunga uniana.
Ka tangi ana te ngākau nā tēnei wehe kei tua o te ārai. E rere haere ana ngā mihi aroha o mātou o Te Rōpū Kākāriki ki te whānau pani me ngā tangata katoa huri noa i te whenua e tangi ana i tēnei wā pouri.
The Green Party is deeply saddened by the passing of Ngāti Awa rangatira Joseph Harawira QSM, who led the Sawmill Workers Against Poisons (SWAP) organisation.
"Joe was a real inspiration to us," said Green Party Co-leader Metiria Turei.
