The Mana Movement is a political party led by Hone Harawira.
The term ‘Movement’ is used instead of ‘Party’ because Mana is as much an activist group outside of parliament, as it is a political party. For example, Mana has been vocal in their support for the Occupy Movement, and opposing the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.
Mana’s founding principle is to bring rangatiratanga (rights) to the poor, the powerless and the dispossessed. Mana members and supporters include Maori activists and social justice campaigners such as Annette Sykes and John Minto.
Five of Mana’s key policies include:
–          Full employment (jobs or training created for everyone)
–          Building 10,000 state houses per year
–          Increase tax on the wealthy and decrease tax on the poor
–          Breakfast and lunch in schools
–          Free university education
This year the Mana Movement have joined with the Internet Party. Check out their video below.
