National Day Of Action Against Welfare Reform #O5

It was our pleasure to attend the Auckland event of the National Day of Action Against Welfare Reform in Henderson today.

Despite the unseasonable rain there was still a good cross-section of the public in attendance and it was great to see some fresh faces – both first-time protesters and first-time citizen journalists, gathered to witness the dissent against the impending cuts.

The cuts are of course an austerity measure, to squeeze the last dollars and cents out of the already-deprived underdogs of society; those with young dependent children, sick, disabled or elderly, who are most affected.

We captured some fantastic video of speakers which we will be editing and uploading A.S.A.P. In the meantime, we’ll let the pictures do the talking. Solidarity everyone!
