TVNZ 7 Funeral March – Auckland

There will be a march in Auckland today marking the final day of broadcasting from TVNZ 7.

Auckland Save TVNZ 7 Funeral March
Saturday 30th at 4.30pm
Starting at Queen Elizabeth Square (Britomart)

Starting at Queen Elizabeth Square (Britomart) at 4.30pm, we then walk up Queen Street, Victoria Street West, past TVNZ to St Matthew-in-the-City for speeches. We know the media will be out in force to get shots of us filing past the TVNZ building so please come along and show your support for public service television.

As well as protesting the government’s decision we are also mourning the loss of our last public service television channel. Please bring flowers or a candle and tell your friends to come along too. It’s a chance to be amongst friends as we remember and celebrate one of the best television channels in New Zealand’s history.

The weather forecast is looking good so please come along for a fun, festive ‘funeral’.

Good on you Myles, I hope you have a good day. Yesterday’s march in Wellington seemed to go well.

Wellington March

The march yesterday exceeded all our expectations. Around 400 TVNZ 7 ‘saviours’ loudly marched to Parliament where the petition with 36,155 signatures was presented to Labour Broadcasting Spokeswoman Clare Curran. It was officially handed over by three generations of TVNZ 7 fans – Anne Fyfe, Kirsty Fyfe and Elliot Baguley.

There were rousing speeches from Clare Curran, Julie Anne Genter (Greens Broadcasting Spokeswoman), Andrew Williams (NZ First), Peter Dunne (United Future Leader), Grant Robertson (Labour Deputy) and Russell Norman (Greens Co-Leader).
