I and eleven other New Plymouth protesters have just returned from shutting down central Auckland during the TPPA signing yesterday.
While 15,000+ protesters marched down Queens Street, 1500 of us engaged in roving blockades shutting down all the streets leading into Central Auckland for four hours. The streets were deserted as we occupied key intersections and boogied to reggae music. It was surreal – reclaiming the streets for a giant street party. Several hundred blockaders briefly shut down the freeway and the Harbour Bridge.
The public response has been phenomenal with hundreds of new activists joining our movement to block TPPA ratification.
