The Remedy in Paraparaumu is being forced to paint their walls white!?

Liana from Raumati Beach

Update for the record: I found out it was the landlord of the building who is disputing the use of the wall, not the council. The council actually sided with The Remedy.

Posting for awareness:

I am so saddened and disappointed that someone (whether business or person has yet to be determined) has decided to complain to the council about the beautiful, colorful mural on the Remedy coffee building and demand that it be whitewashed. I am usually so proud of this community, and I can’t get my head around the small mindedness and mean spiritedness of this at all.

The Remedy have asked on their Facebook for their loyal customers to come along and write in sharpie a message of support on the wall before they have to paint it plain old white - all because we have a few horrible “Karens” in town. And unfortunately, it seems the Karen’s have won this round.

Please keep support high for this wonderful business, which happens to have the best coffee and bagels around!

And to whoever it was who instigated this awful whitewashing of an iconic, bright, cheerful landmark: just know that karma is a very real thing. I trust you’ll be getting yours back to you - “Karen”.

Bowel cancer can strike at any age. Each year about 3,000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with the disease and more than 1,200 will die. That’s as many as breast and prostate cancer combined. But it is treatable – and beatable – if detected early enough. Check your symptoms
