Auckland Action Against Poverty: Demo for the beggars

Here's a selection of snaps from the demonstration organised by Auckland Action Against Poverty outside Smith and Caughey today.

Mayoral candidate John Minto (you know which side he's on) and the Mana team.

















A liveable city for all? Now there's a novel thought!
















Sometimes an actual beggar shows up, which can be, um, awkward...


















Round up the usual suspects...
