Protest at Parliament

Māori on their long march from Northland to Wellington – Te Rōpū Matakite o Aotearoa – arrive in Parliament grounds on 13 October 1975 to present their Memorial of Right to Parliament. Whina Cooper, who appears at the end of this clip, led the march from its starting point at Te Hapua a month earlier.
