The Herald reports that “As many as a thousand people joined a march in Whakatane to complain about children being caught up in the police operation.” The protest is one of many across the country.
These protests make an interesting contrast with Trotter’s piece in the Dom today in which he writes:
“It wasn’t the actions of the police that provoked my fury, but of those who’d forced their hand.”
My guess is that there will be continuing division on this until more facts emerge.
