Good on them

A while ago I mentioned that the National Front were coming to Wellington for a demonstration. Now it seems that Wellington residents have risen to the occasion and are organising a march against racism to show them they aren't welcome.

The aim was nicely captured by one organiser, who was quoted in the Herald as saying:

This is a democratic society, they [the NF] have a right to be organised, they have the right to oppose anything. We have to show we are much better than them for society

But it's not just about the National Front - the march will also be opposing humiliating immigration policies and Maori-bashing. I guess Don Brash had better watch out...
