March against 'mass incarceration'

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 10/02/2017

There's a protest in Auckland against "mass incarceration" in New Zealand.

The protest in Aotea Square at noon on Saturday is a joint effort by the groups Auckland Peace Action and No Pride in Prisons.

They want an end to new prison construction and a reform of bail laws to put an end to the mass incarceration of people on remand, arguing people are imprisoned for extended periods without having been found guilty of an offence.

"The struggle for peace will not be won until government's stop waging war on their own citizens as well as those of other nations," the groups say.
