The protest at Aotea Square from 1pm on Saturday will have a "Monopoly" theme, organisers Stand Up Youth Union Movement and Unions Auckland say.

"For young people today, it's like starting a game of Monopoly without even enough cash to even buy the very cheapest property on the board. Meanwhile, those who played before us still hold all the cards," says spokesman Hamish Hutchison.

We're assembling "to express a deep anger for being cheated off the board. It's time to change the rules of the game," Mr Hutchison says.
