Falun Gong marchers disrupt Auckland traffic

16 Jun

Protesters who held up Queen St traffic on Saturday afternoon are blaming the incident on the Auckland City Council.

About 100 Falun Gong supporters were blocked midway through their march by the police and told to march on the footpath.

They were commemorating the 1989 Tianamen Square Incident.

The president of the Auckland Council for Civil Liberties, Barry Wilson, says the council had refused the marchers permission to walk up Queen St.

Radio New Zealand’s reporter at the scene says at least three police patrol cars and about 10 police officers blocked the march on Queen Street.
