A protest of epic proportions: a tandem ride to Parliament

From Summer Report, 7:56 am on 16 January 2020

A couple on a tandem bike towing a coffin from Invercargill to Wellington are about halfway on their journey to protest the drug-buying agency Pharmac's budget.

Julian and Camilla Cox, on behalf of lobby group Patient Voice Aotearoa, want Pharmac's budget of one billion dollars doubled immediately and then tripled within two years.

Julian Cox spoke to Leigh-Marama McLachlan about the pedal-powered pursuit.
