An ocean of humanity with one voice: “Freedom”! An overwhelming turnout reminds we fighters for freedoms that we are not alone; there are many thousands of us and the number keeps growing.

Once again and this time despite provocation, a peaceful protest. We were warned at the start that trouble would arrive and it did in due course. keep reading.
While I haven’t seen any official figures, ten thousand-plus is easily believable. Absolutely overwhelming. Never have I seen the usually laidback and reticent New Zealand public respond like this.
Several speakers took the podium: Teachers, midwives, a brave young teenage man who, after 8 years as a volunteer helper had been rejected from his role because he declined the vaccine. Really emotional testimony, most of which will be ignored by the MSM reporters in attendance. This author’s proudest moment was when my ten year old niece’s poem about freedom was read aloud. See below:
The expected provocation and disruption arrived just as the crowd marched into Cathedral square.
A gang of moped riders (in defiance of the law I might add) appeared from nowhere and rode through the “no vehicles” public square, cutting through the crowd amongst families and narrowly avoiding babes in pushchairs and elderly pedestrians. Sheer idiocy. Everyone peacefully stepped aside. To their absolute credit the bikers in our procession stood back and avoided conflict. Before long we heard the sirens of police cars and the mopeds vanished.
The march continued until a fire truck, lights and sirens blazing, came down the street. It was awesome to see thousands of protestors quickly and efficiently move aside like the Red Sea parting to let the fire fighters pass through unhindered. I heard several murmurs of “set-up” but it doesn’t matter whether it was a real emergency or a test of our response as it was handled without fuss.
A big thankyou to Freedom and Rights Coalition and a shout out to Voices For Freedom, Don’t Divide Us, and the Maori Rangers for their participation.
Today will go down in history and I’m proud to have been part of it.
