Here;s Tina Goodwin, TAC tobacco worker, on stage at the Oceania Tobacco Control Conference with Hone Harawura. Tina announced Hone as the winner of the Tariana Turia award which recognises significant contributions to Indigenous tobacco control. Hone has worked as a community activist and parliamentarian on many issues of importance to Maori. He wants to see tobacco companies sued for all of the death and destruction they cause to Maori, Aboriginal and other Indigenous communities.
Hone’s words: “Those bastards (Big Tobacco) are making people addicted and they are killing our people. Let’s sue them!”
Anyone want to help with the legal case?
