Marxists Declare War on National's Labour Legislation

Back to New Zealand for a minute.

The Unite union and Socialist Aotearoa protest outside the recent National Party conference in Auckland, against proposed labour law changes.

Several of NZ's leading marxist agitators are at their revolutionary best - Joe Carolan, Matt McCarten and dear old John Minto

Sometimes I forget that the revolution is still unfolding in my own backyard.

BTW, NZ's own Matt McCarten played a bit part part in the movement that gave us Barack Obama.

Stay tuned for the story.

The protest was for the cameras not the people at the conference. The unions didn't even get the venue right - they tried to storm the Sky City Hotel when the conference was over the road at the Sky City Grand.

Losing their way physically mirrors their off-target philosophy.

The conference was in the Skycity convention center which is beside the Hotel. Protesters got into the lobby of the hotel but staff had locked the connecting doors to the convention center.

Most protests I go to are aimed at the cameras. I can quite honestly say this one wasnt those leading the charge were genuinely angry and didnt really care how it looked in the media.

It looks as though they are as competent as the US government. It is doubtful that anything less competent could still breathe.
