#Hikoi travels through Johnsonville #anfs

1 min read

(Dominion Post) About 80 people marched through the streets of Johnsonville this morning as part of a hikoi protesting the sale of state assets. The Aotearoa Not for Sale Hikoi oppose the Government’s partial sale of power companies, deep sea oil drilling, mining, the Crafar farm sales and a range of other issues. The group then marched to Ohariu MP Peter Dunne’s office to try and convince him to oppose asset sales. They are targeting the United Future leader because his vote could stop the asset sales from going ahead. The march started this morning outside the Johnsonville Railway Station carpark. Aileen Morris and her daughter, Kaizen, 4, began the hikoi in Hamilton. “It’s been going really well. People are very strong. There is so much aroha. Since I joined more and more cars have joined on the hikoi.” The group plans to protest outside Parliament tomorrow. Yesterday, a group of protesters draped a “No Asset Sales” banneron Wellington’s National War Memorial.
