Covid-19: Anti-vaccination mandate convoy due to arrive soon in Wellington

From Morning Report, 7:23 am on 8 February 2022

Convoys protesting against Covid-19 mandates are expected to cause traffic disruption this morning when they converge on Wellington from the North and South. 

Two convoys made up of hundreds of trucks, cars and other vehicles, have been travelling the length of the country since Sunday. 

The South Island convoy arrived in Picton yesterday, although it is unclear how many will be able to travel to Wellington, as a vaccine pass or negative Covid-19 test are needed to board the ferry.
