The sun shone brightly in Dunedin today (as it usually does of course). Between 1 and 2 thousand people (ODT estimate) turned out to march in protest at the National government’s plan to sell our assets.
The March was organised by Grey Power, and supported by the union movement, the political parties of the left, and NZF. (A couple of brave National supporters were there too – a special welcome to them!) We heard excellent speeches from a student representative, Glenda Alexander, David Parker, David Clark, Metiria Turei, Jo Millar (Grey Power) and others. Some random photos below (excuse poor quality phone pix).
An excellent day. As Dunedin North Labour MP David Clark put it on Twitter – “Weather and mood invigorating.”
