Angry farmers continue to protest over 'unworkable' regulations

From Morning Report, 7:16 am on 22 November 2021

Angry farmers took to the streets on Sunday in their utes and tractors, blocking traffic to protest regulations they say are unworkable.

In Auckland, some vehicles displayed New Zealand flags and signs bearing slogans such as "No No No to the Three Waters reform" and "F F S - for farmers' sakes".

Groundswell NZ leader Laurie Paterson says the protests are not about the left or the right of the political spectrum - but about middle New Zealanders who are working hard to feed the country.
