Liquor store protest

The proposed - and recently approved - new liquor store in Wickman Way, opposite Southern Cross Campus in Mangere, is certainly receiving its fair share of unwelcome publicity. The spin (the nearest other off-licence is 1 kilomtre away!; we won't open between 3 and 4 in the afternoon!) has not placated locals who appear to have finally gotten fed up with their suburb being a site for parasites on poverty from the gambling and liquor industries.

Here's a couple of snaps from today's protest outside Southern Cross Campus and opposite the site of the new off-licence.

Yoof. And Hone. Great to see our young people taking an active part in opposing this.

Team ROCC and friends. Rock stars, one and all.

Go te whanau kakariki!
