Loud Destiny Church protests irritate Christchurch residents

From Morning Report, 8:27 am on 13 January 2022

Protests and religious gatherings in a central Christchurch park by Brian Tamaki's Destiny Church and the Freedom and Rights Coalition, have left residents fed-up with the noise, and forced ratepayers to foot the bill for traffic management.

Since November, both groups have made Cranmer Square their regular meeting place. It's caused so much disruption, Christchurch City Council met with police to discuss the situation yesterday.
