Protestors turn out to womens rights gathering at Parliament

From Midday Report, 12:44 pm on 3 May 2023

Several hundred people have turned out to Parliament for a Speak Up For Women gathering and counter-protest, which both got underway at 12.30pm.

The women's rights group supported a visit to New Zealand by British anti-trans activist Posie Parker in March, but her planned Auckland rally was overwhelmed by trans solidarity supporters, leading her to cancel her Wellington rally.

RNZ's political reporter, Anneke Smith, spoke to Charlotte Cook from Parliament.
