Family Court Protest

Filed under: Events — Julie @ 6:22 pm Sat 2nd May 2009

Thanks to Jim Bailey over at rationshed for the details of this events. I beleive Paul Catton from East Auckland Men’s Refuge has also helped organise it.

Citizens who have been shafted by the NZ Court are chaining themselves in front of the Auckland High Court on Thursday, 7 May, 9-11 am. It is a “Access to Justice is a fundamental right” protest to get press coverage in conjunction with the meeting that day on New Zealand’s submissions to the U.N. on its human rights record. Peaceful protest designed not to impede business but make a big visual impact.

Are you in the area and interested in participating?

  2. I wish I could make it. I’d definitely be up for that if I could. All the best for those that go along.

  3. These don’t work, think bigger. Like a march of men, women and children down queen st. Everyone who is sick of these anti family, anti male laws and courts.
