Tearing down Black Lives Matter posters 'wrong' - principal

From Checkpoint, 6:11 pm on 12 June 2020

The Principal at Christchurch Girls High School says it was wrong for a staff member to tear down Black Lives Matter posters, put up by a group of students.

Christine O'Neill says she has now spoken to the staff member involved, met with the group of Year 13s and put the posters back up.

She told RNZ reporter Anan Zaki the 'all lives matter' comment made when the posters were torn down was wrong as well.
