As much as TV1’s CloseUp program tried to cast Occupy in a negative light, even the Mayor of Invercargill and Deputy Mayor of Auckland expressed sympathy for the Occupy cause, and respect for the importance of the right to protest.
Cherry-picking footage of someone who has expressly stated they don’t want to be filmed is some pretty questionable journalism….
Rest assured, the featured hand gesture is not endorsed by the Occupy Wellington General Assembly.
We welcome anyone to come and visit to see how things really are!
