From Checkpoint, 6:14 pm on 4 December 2019

Protesters gathered outside the Otago Daily Times in Dunedin today to show their anger at a cartoon which poked fun at the measles epidemic in Samoa.

In response, the newspaper has announced it will not publish any work by cartoonist Garrick Tremain until a review of his future at the publication is complete.

RNZ Otago-Southland reporter Timothy Brown was at the protest and filed this report.
