Protest Speaker Line Up Unveiled

The Len Brown Stand Down March takes place this Saturday February 22. Marchers assemble at QE2 in Britomart from 11:30, with the march leaving Britomart at 12, travelling up Queen Street to Airedale Street.

A fantastic array of speakers from all across the political spectrum can now be announced:

Affordable Auckland Spokesman Will Ryan will address marchers while still in Britomart from 1145.

Once the march reaches Airedale Street, the line-up will be as follows:

Stephen Berry – Leader of Affordable Auckland and third placing Mayoral candidate in the 2013 elections

Russell Malcolm – Victim of the Pinchgate Affair which resulted in a police order forbidding him from contacting members of the Auckland Council

Penny Bright – Anti-corruption campaigner and fourth placing Mayoral candidate in the 2013 elections

Vinny Eastwood – AKA Mr. News. Vinny fronts for the internationally popular Vinny Eastwood show and heads Guerilla Media

David Thornton – Founder of No More Rates and a Local Board candidate in the 2013 election

Makelesi Ngata – Spokesperson for the Tamaki Housing Group

The Len Brown Stand Down March is bringing Aucklanders of all political hues together in their opposition to the corruption permeating the current Mayoral regime. With opinion polls consistently showing 60-75% of Aucklanders believe Len Brown should resign, this march promises to be very successful.
