From Checkpoint, 5:30 pm on 12 May 2021

Lying down to demand action - in 11 towns and cities across the country, people made an impassioned plea for the government to double Pharmac's funding, and triple it within two years.

In the capital, about 200 people braved the rain to deliver the petition to Parliament.

Our reporter Ruth Hill and cameraman Dom Thomas were there.
