ECan: The people are angry

Last night, the Greens organised a public meeting to discuss the government's abolition of democracy in Canterbury. They were expecting about a hundred people, but more than three hundred turned up, overflowing the venue and resulting in a second, impromptu, meeting being held on the footpath outside. People were willing to stand around in the cold of an autumn Christchurch night to hear about this issue, and have their say on it. People don't do that when they're happy.

Labour's Lianne Dalziel has her report of the meeting here.

If you're in Christchurch, angry, and want to do something about the government's seizure of Canterbury's water, there's another meeting at the Great Hall in the Arts Centre tonight:

When: 19:30 - 21:30, Thursday 15 April
Where: Great Hall, Arts Centre

Be there, and show your anger.
