Full story www.stuff.co.nz... eet-protests-go-global




LATEST: About 2000 people are in Auckland's Aotea Square this afternoon as part of a global Occupy movement than began in Wall Street, New York.
About 200 turned out in Wellington and 30 in Christchurch.

Auckland's action began with 300 people marching up Queen St - avoiding a much larger gathering of Samoans in Shortland St where Manu Samoan player Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu was facing the International Rugby Board over his tweeting habits.

They have begun to listen to speeches and plan further action.

Havnt really been p[aying much attention to the wall street thing, but now its reached us all the way in New Zealand?Well it seems this is quite a big deal, and am glad to be a kiwi! will be heading into town soon to pitch in

About an hour ago I happened to stumble across (local talkback radio station) 3AW, who had a guy on that had been to the Melbourne protests.
His 'report' was scathing. Pathetic, he said. He described an uncoordinated bunch of people with no clear message, complaining about 10 or 12 wildly different issues.
He said (twice) that he has no problem with people protesting. Its one of the things you should do in a democratic society. But if you are going to occupy an area, tie up police resources and interfere with pedestrian and vehicle traffic then at least *present a clear message to the public* so they know why on earth you are there.

So the way it was described to Melbourne listeners was that if you're someone who wants to whine and complain about something... thats what the protest was about.

Yea true, the area the protests are in, in my city, it is going to cause a nightmare for the city busses because they drop off people there.

I guess the Melbourne one was very poorly organised and too hasty, they shouldnt have just started it for the sake of copying America but instead organised a better date and get more numbers along with a main idea, but then again you heard it from the RADIO.
