AAAP Takes Action Against National Party, Budget

On May 24th AAAP and allies held 2 actions in one day in response to the National Party Budget. In the morning we held a picket and roof occupation of the Waipuna Lodge where John Key was set to speak to the National Party. Roughly 50 people descended upon the conference in a boisterous morning picket. In the afternoon, John Key was set to speak to the business roundtable at the Langham. About 250 people held a staunch picket outside which ended in many business folk being turned away in a confrontational manner with two arrests at the end of the day.
