People's Procession in the media

23,000 signatures to the GST-off-food petition are trollied to the steps of Parliament
The handover of the GST-off-food petition to Maori Party MP Hone Harawira on the steps of parliament received more good media coverage, particularly in Wellington.
The People's Procession finale was the lead story on Maori TV News. There was good Radio coverage. The above photo appeared in the Dominion Post with accompanying article
Over the two weeks of the People's Procession and in the build-up beforehand there were probably a hundred or more radio, print and television reports.
This extensive media coverage means the GST-off-food campaign has ingrained itself in mass consciousness. All goes well for a possible CIR petition next year.
