Why are these people carrying this banner?

These people are carrying the banner because they don't think the treaty has been honoured.

The treaty was signed on 6th Feb 1840. 40 maori chiefs signed it later 500 more signed most of the chiefs didn't know how to write. They used symbols and crosses.

The treaty was signed in waitangi which is above Aukland the treaty was between 2 groups the british and the maori. There is a Maori version and an English version .

They are now debating which treaty is more accurate.
