Asset Sale protests
We've heard that around 40 people marched in Wanganui today loudly declaring that Aotearoa is not for sale.
The city of Wanganui has around 44,000 residents. So today's protest represents less than 0.1% of the city's population.
Is it safe then to speculate that the other 99.9% of Wanganui's residents either don't have a strong view, or simply don't care if the government sells a minority stake in several SOE's? It certainly seems that way.
