When 8,000 protesters amassed on the steps of Parliament in July, John Key claimed from inside that very building, to be unaware of their presence. Only last week, he told the NZ public to outright “ignore” the TPPA protesters. Today those protesters showed that they will not be ignored. The mainstream media version of today’s events is that a rogue female protester assaulted a cop, resulting in the unrest. However, eye witness testimony from those on the ground paints a vastly different picture. As does the extremely valuable live video coverage of the event, broadcast by Occupy Eye (NYC, DC) and Redstar309Z (Auckland, NZ) from the ground. Their streams are a must-see.
