Maori protesting over the 'Foreshore and Seabed Act'.
This Act concerns the ownership of the country's foreshore and seabed, with many Maori groups claiming that Maori have a rightful claim to title. These claims are based around historical possession and the Treaty of Waitangi. On 18 November 2004, the government passed a law which gave ownership to the state thereby giving it to all New Zealanders.
