‘Occupy Auckland’ Participants To Be Evicted?
THIS WILL BE INTERESTING….FROM GRANNY HERALD….
Getting a court order to clear protesters who have been camped in Aotea Square since October 15 should be treated as a priority, say eight Auckland council members.
In a letter to council chief executive Doug McKay, the councillors said the anti-capitalism protesters were trifling with the council by breaching a bylaw prohibiting unauthorised camping in a public place.
“We believe there is good justification for the council to remove the tents.
“If you are reluctant to remove the tents arbitrarily then we suggest the council should urgently obtain a court order.”
The letter was signed by councillors Cameron Brewer, Chris Fletcher, Des Morrison, Calum Penrose, Dick Quax, Sharon Stewart, George Wood and Sir John Walker.
The council has 20 members and Mayor Len Brown.
