Asset sales hikoi to walk through Rotorua today

(NewsTalkZB) The ‘Aotearoa is not for sale’ hikoi is set to march through Rotorua this morning.

The hikoi set off from the Far North to head to Wellington, to protest the privatisation and selling off, of the countries resources.

The group plans on holding a rally at Rotorua MP Todd McClay’s office around nine this morning, they’ll be marching there from the lake front.

Mr McClay says there’s nothing new about groups protesting outside his office.

“It’s not the first time there’s been a demonstration outside my office. We’ve, as a government, put in place an economic agenda, there are a number of parts to it and it’s important that these people feel they can have their say.”

Mr McClay won’t be in town when the hikoi arrives.
