Protest to get Lewis Stanton off Nelson streets

Residents in Nelson are holding a protest this weekend to get Lewis Stanton, also known as Hone Ma Heke, off the streets.

Mr Stanton set up camp in the town centre two years ago - a move that affected businesses and angered residents.

The City Council has spent a lot of ratepayer's money on strategically-placed planter boxes and sprinklers, to try and dissuade him from camping out… but he's still there.

Nelson business owner John Hogey joined Paul Henry this morning.
