  • 30/03/2023

The person who threw tomato juice at gender activist Posie Parker has been charged with assault.

Police confirmed to Newshub a person has been summoned to appear in the Auckland District Court on a single charge of common assault. 

"As the matter is before the Court no further comment will be made at this time," the spokesperson said.

It comes after Parker, whose real name is Kellie-Jay Keen Minshull, held a rally in Auckland's Albert Park on Saturday as part of her Let Women Speak tour. 

Pushing started between attendees of Parker's rally and the larger counter-protest, and a small fight broke out as the activist made her way through the barricade to speak to the crowd.

Red liquid was thrown over Parker, and she was escorted out of the venue by her security guards after being rushed and sprayed with water.

Parker later cancelled her Wellington event and fled New Zealand on Saturday night.
