Big protest in Dunedin against asset sales

  • 16/06/2012

More than a thousand people have turned out in Dunedin to protest against the Government's plan to sell off stakes in state-owned companies.

Estimates of the crowd ranged from 1000 to 2000, the Otago Daily Times reported today.

More than 2000 people turned out for march on the issue in Auckland, the country's largest city, in April.

The protesters oppose the Government's plan for the partial privatisation of state-owned energy companies Mighty River Power, Meridian, Genesis Energy and coal miner Solid Energy.

National campaigned on the proposed sales in last year's election.
