Wellington protest

"Early this morning a small group of protesters scaled scaffolding on Wellington's National War Memorial carillon to hang a massive "No Asset Sales" banner.

The protesters are part of a coalition of Wellington groups opposing the Government's plan to sell up to 49 per cent of four state-owned energy companies and further reduce its shareholding in Air New Zealand."

Authoritarians are pretending outrage at the 'desecration' of the monument in Wellington.

Protesters counter that they are outraged at the Governments plans to sell assets paid for by generations of New Zealanders.

Looks like they got the message across pretty effectively.
