A protest is planned on Saturday, to go against the Government is aiming to stop lockdowns from happening. It is run by Aroha for Aotearoa & NZ Liberty March.

“Calling ALL Kiwi patriots and freedom fighters,” says the event organisers on a social media event.

The organisers say that it is a peaceful protest, a demonstration, to send a message to the Government that they disagree with how they’re handling the current COVID-19 pandemic.


The event will start at around 12:00 pm at Embassy Cinemas, further moving to Civic Square, where speakers will talk to the audience.

“All are welcome to join but remember – this is a PEACEFUL protest and we do not associate with anyone who incites violence.”

Violence towards one another will not be tolerated.

They are respecting the authorities, no name-calling, etc.

“They are fellow humans who are simply doing their job – and their job is to keep people safe.”

The march, according to a social media event, is for democracy and transparency.

“You might have your own personal reasons for marching, and that is perfectly fine to stand up for what you believe in as well, but the common goal is to bring awareness to the government that we want to change in the way they are handling the pandemic.”

Social distancing is advised, or If you are sick/have tested positive for Covid-19 within the past 14 days, the organisers recommend that you do not attend this event.

Groups will be no larger than 100 people and put into a group bubble each if a count is required. 

“Have fun! We are here to send a message to our leaders, yes, but we are also here to spread positivity and love.”
