Attribute to Inspector Jim Wilson, Auckland City East Area Commander:
Police and Waka Kotahi are advising motorists to be aware of the potential for planned protests to cause some disruption to traffic today in Tāmaki Makaurau.
Locations that protesters are expected to gather, including Auckland Domain, will be monitored by Police.
Police ask the community to be patient on the roads as we expect there might be some traffic delays and disruptions, particularly near the Domain, and the surrounding areas.
We are actively monitoring this event to ensure the protest activity is carried out in a safe manner for all involved, including members of the public.
Any unsafe or dangerous behaviour occurring throughout the event will be followed up by Police and appropriate action taken.
Any concerning behaviour can be reported to Police by calling 105.
Police recognise the public’s right to protest peacefully and lawfully but we will take action where required.
