Protest Activity In Central Auckland Concludes Without Issue

Inspector Jim Wilson, Auckland City East Area Commander:

Protesters involved in today’s gathering in central Auckland have now dispersed.

Around 500 people congregated in Auckland Domain today to engage in protest activity.

In general, this was a peaceful protest, which Police monitored accordingly.

While there were no arrests or incidents of note, Police will complete a review phase in the coming weeks to determine if any follow-up action is required.

The Police focus today remained on balancing the safety of all protesters and the public, while acknowledging the right to protest peacefully and lawfully.

We note the activity did disrupt traffic in central Auckland where some motorway on and off-ramps were temporarily closed by Waka Kotahi to minimise further disruption.

These have now reopened and there are no further network issues.
We would like to thank the members of the public who deferred their travel through the affected areas today and acknowledge those that were inconvenienced.
