We’re Not Done Yet!

PRESS RELEASE
ISSUED BY LEN BROWN STAND DOWN COALITION

We’re Not Done Yet!

Len Brown Stand Down Coalition Spokesman Dick Cuthbert says the group will continue in its role as Len Brown’s conscience following a successful march down Queen Street on Saturdayattended by hundreds of people. “Len Brown has not resigned yet so our organisation will increase the pressure on the Mayor even further!”

Mr. Cuthbert today released an itinerary to the media to make them aware of where further protests following the Mayor will occur next.

• Tuesday 25 February from 1pm. The Unitary Plan Committee will be meeting at Auckland Town Hall from 1:30 pm. The LBSD Coalition will have members outside the Town Hall.
• Wednesday 26 February. The Mayor will be attending the New Zealander of the Year Awards at Langham Hotel, which starts at 7pm. The Coalition will have a contingent outside the Hotel to welcome Len Brown from 5:30pm.
• Thursday 27 February. Governing Body Meeting Takapuna Service Centre, The Strand from 9:00am. Coalition member Penny Bright will be seeking speaking rights in order to address the meeting.

In other developments, on Friday 28 February, the Solicitor-General will make a decision on whether to grant leave for the private prosecution of the Mayor, initiated by Graham McCready. Mr. Cuthbert says, “Brown might be able to smile and wave while a city remains outraged by his Mayoralty, but he cannot avoid being put in the dock. Should the private prosecution for alleged bribery be permitted to proceed, Brown will find his position untenable!”

The Len Brown Coalition will be making further announcements regarding its activities following the Solicitor-General’s decision this Friday.
