ANZAC Day Protests

Published: Tue 25 Apr 2017 01:32 PM
New Zealand First says ANZAC Day is not a day for protest.
“ANZAC Day is a sacred day for commemoration and reflection and using it for protest is inappropriate,” says Ron Mark, New Zealand First Defence Spokesperson and a returned serviceman himself.
“Yes we fought for the democratic right of protest but there are 364 other days for people to make their point. Choosing today, of all days, is disrespectful but designed to garner cheap media attention.
“It leaves a very sour taste indeed,” Mr Mark says.
