“Protesters to descend on Parliament urging politicians to consider those less fortunate at Christmas”

Posted on

Reporting from Newhub on coming action at Parliament:

“The demonstration has been organised by the United Community Action Network (UCAN) after more than 40 welfare and poverty charities signed an open letter to the Government pleading for them to increase welfare in the lead up to Christmas…They are all going to go to homes that they own and they are going to have big dinners and lunches and gifts for all of the family and I want them to see the faces and hear the voices of people who don’t have that opportunity. The real people who are affected by the decisions that they are denying us.”
