Anzac Day events finalised

A revised schedule of Anzac Day commemorative events for Auckland has been announced.

Police from across Auckland, the Auckland District Returned and Services Association (RSA) and Auckland Council have been working together to agree a consolidated list of events in the wake of the Christchurch attacks.

In the current heightened security environment, Police have agreed to maintain a visible presence at events for public reassurance.

As a result, Police had recommended that Anzac Day events in Auckland be consolidated so that they could adequately resource each public gathering.

In conjunction with Police and the RSA, Auckland Council has confirmed that this year’s events schedule will be reduced to 26 events from last year’s 84.

The list of event locations is outlined below.

Those gathering at each event will be invited to attend their local RSA at the conclusion of the activities, should this be appropriate or convenient.

Auckland Council and Auckland Transport are now working on a range of transport options to ensure that those wishing to attend these events are able to do so.

This schedule of activities has been collectively agreed and supported by all agencies, enabling the RSA to give good coverage across the city while also managing the requirements of the Police.

Meanwhile, other commemoration activities for Anzac Day will continue as planned. Vector Lights on Auckland Harbour Bridge will shine poppy-red for Poppy Day on 10, 11 and 12 April and display a moving Anzac Day light show with soundtrack on 23, 24 and 25 April; brought to Auckland from 6pm until midnight each evening.

Auckland War Memorial Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira will also light up on 12 April for Poppy Day and on 23, 24 and 25 April for Anzac Day.

Gordon Campbell: On The Clark Exit, Convention Centres, And The Killing Of Hachalu Hundessa


Goodbye, David Clark. In the end, the outgoing Health Minister decided that in the midst of a pandemic the best thing he could do for New Zealand would be to no longer be there – given that being there had involved hiving off on his mountain bike during a lockdown, and throwing the country’s most beloved Health bureaucrat under a bus. As Clark indicated so memorably at last week’s press conference, when it comes to managing public health risks at the border the buck stops with…that guy over there! In the aftermath of that debacle, Clark reached the same conclusion the nation had reached some time ago, that leadership just wasn’t his thing. Once again, he got on his bike.... More>>
