Forty different hīkoi, backed by Te Pāti Māori, have been taking place from Kaitaia to Invercargill throughout the day  as part of a nationwide protest against the government's policies.  

In Auckland's CBD, protestors have demonstrated from Aotea Square and down Queen Street many bringing with them tamariki and rangatahi.
