To-day's demonstration

Tel from Central Whangarei

There was a small demonstration in Whangārei to-day. It consisted of a few people claiming their freedom not to be vaccinated. Aside from vaccines not being compulsory, I have nothing against them demonstrating. They were not causing a nuisance and freedom of speech is important. It is even more important that we defend freedom of speech for groups with whom we disagree. Mind you why they want their children to die coughing up blood and mucus is beyond me but nevermind.

However there was one thing that I found annoying. One of the demonstrators was flying the He Whakaputanga flag. I support their right to demonstrate and I support their right to put their point of view. Basically if they want to stand up and say, "We are a load of ignorant numpties." then fair play to them. But they do not have the right to say, "All Māori are numpties." Before flying the United Tribes Flag, they should seek permission and I am confident that it would not be given,
