KAKA Legal Appeal:

Submitted by Paul Murray on Thu, 10/07/2008 - 8:36am

Karameans Advocating Kahurangi Action (KAKA) is a community group formed in Karamea late last year to address the concerns of the people living in our region about scheduled 1080 air drops. KAKA’s activities have drawn considerable attention to this issue on the West Coast and have added weight to the efforts of other 1080 groups around the country. The efforts of the KAKA committee and members have now reached the point where legal advice is required to sustain and build on the public momentum we have gained.

Recently, a KAKA member approached top public law firm Chen Palmer (www.chenpalmer.com), which has now agreed to provide legal advice to KAKA and provide representations as needed. Chen Palmer’s support will prove critical to consolidating our gains and forcing decision makers at the political level to properly address legitimate public concerns about the use of 1080.

Any legal information or advice that KAKA receives from Chen Palmer will be shared with all 1080 campaigners nation wide to enable us all to find a better alternative to 1080, one that is acceptable to all stakeholders.

KAKA is appealing for financial support to cover on-going legal costs. Donations, large or small, will be gratefully accepted.
