The Auckland Town Hall was full – nearly 2000 people – for the GCSB protest last night (with more people being turned away at the doors). Update – full video of the whole event (all speakers) is now up on YouTube:
This meeting comes along with the results of the Campbell Live poll:
How many did we get? 52,666 – way more than the online snapper submissions, and in a much shorter time.
It’s also the biggest poll in TV3 history, significantly more than any online or text poll either we or 3 News have ever run, and text polls are much easier to vote in.
And here’s the results – 11 percent of you supported the GCSB bill. That was 5879 votes. And 89 percent of you opposed it. That was 46,790. If you didn’t vote, you had a week to do so. And if you did vote, thank you, whatever side of the issue you were on.
Finally, some photos of the audience. Bravo to all!
