Three arrested at Parliament anti-mandate protest

From Checkpoint, 6:06 pm on 9 February 2022

More than 100 police have been holding protestors at bay outside parliament on the second day of a rally against vaccination mandates.

Three people have been arrested. The protestors have set up a makeshift camp on the grounds of Parliament and abandoned vehicles - blocking nearby streets.

The Speaker, Trevor Mallard's warned they're breaking the rules and an attempt was made to trespass some of the group earlier today.

But it appears no one's budging. Our political reporter Charlie Dreaver joins us now from Parliament.
