NZ Anti-Nanny March Gains Worldwide Coverage
Submitted by Peter Cresswell on Wed, 2007-03-28 08:55
The news of today's anti-Nanny State march in Wellington, New Zealand, has been picked up worldwide, and SOLO luminary Lindsay Perigo (right, on Parliament's steps) is taking a leading role in the story, disseminated by Associated Press.
Hundreds of protesters marched on New Zealand's Parliament Wednesday, demanding lawmakers throw out a proposed new law that critics say removes parents' right to smack their children...
Just a couple of corrections to this story: First of all, the march organiser was young Mitch Lees, seen here with Lindsay Perigo. And second, the reporter has the chant wrong. As one of the marchers said, what he'll be singing in his dreams tonight will the chant heard all afternoon arond Parliament grounds (except in the press gallery, it seems), "2, 4, 6, 8, we don't need your Nanny State!"
For the full AP report, I'd suggest you see 'Critics Protest 'Anti-Smacking' Law' in The Guardian. The irony of Lindsay appearing in The Guardian is delightful, and well earned.
