Protest rally - 12 noon on Sunday

For those outside Christchurch the significance of tomorrow (Sunday) may not be apparent.

Cantabrians Unite (website here) are organising a protest rally. The points at issue are:
  • A fresh mid term council election
  • Replace the council chief executive
  • Abolish council centralized structure and replace with a one city many communities model
  • Provide affordable land for housing and business
  • Affordable Rates
The protest may, or may not, receive widespread or competent coverage. The local Press newspaper (here) is of variable quality while the Auckland based NZ Herald (here) is more consistent. TV coverage may be available from TVNZ (here), TV3 (here), or local channel CTV (here).
