Groundswell promises to be "mother of all protests"

From Sunday Morning, 8:11 am on 21 November 2021

Back in July, farmers and their friends took to the streets of more than 50 towns and cities in New Zealand in 'A Howl of Protest' against what they said is a "a tsunami of regulations." Today the Groundswell movement is promising 'the Mother of all Protests' - and this time anger about vaccine mandates and the Covid response has made the mix more volatile.
