On November 9, 2021 in Wellington, New Zealand, protesters performed Haqqa during the Coalition for Freedom and Rights struggle in Parliament.

Maori tribes have called on New Zealand’s anti-vaccine protesters to “immediately” stop using the traditional war dance hakka.

Ka Made Haqqa is very popular because it is performed by the All Blacks national rugby team before every match.

The The Nadi Toa tribe, which has the legal rights to the Haqqa It issued a warning following the use of it by several anti-vaccine protesters during protests last week.

The vaccination rate against Govt-19 is low among the Maori population. Only 61% of those eligible have been fully vaccinated and 77% have received the first dose. This is a much lower figure than the rate in New Zealand, where 90% of the eligible population is vaccinated.
