Auckland daily photo extra!

This photo was my first post in this blog.
This view is what is at stake tonight.
The New Zealand government is pushing for a rugby stadium to be built on Auckland’s waterfront, right on the water’s edge. By the year 2011 this view may be obscured by a 12 stories high stadium wall.
The Auckland City Council is deliberating tonight on whether to approve this venue for a new stadium – government’s choice – or to recommend the refurbishment of the existing Eden Park stadium. Let’s hope that reason prevails.

This is why these people were protesting today

  1. What I find really interesting is how neat the penmanship is on the signs. The protests I see are usually full of sloppily written signs.

  2. waterfront stadium sounds appealing to visitors/tourists; however to meet with strong opposition, it must have more cons than pros.
