cherie. i laugh that in 2011 we cling to a government idea formed thousands of years ago.
which sure for a time would have been needed and worked.
what governments didn't have back then is technology and science hell they were stupid enough to think the world is flat.
we don't need to work machinery can take over 95% of the work force provided anything which has to do with money is eliminated.
why do you need money in a world where electricity homes and food is free.
the venus project look it up Cherie before you think you know everything.

corporate greed is what national and john key represent,they do not represent workers in fact they are anti workers uniting for better working conditions etc.the ceo of westpac gets 11 million a year ,over 10 years that is $110 million taken out of the bank and yet the bank can declare a loss with private investors accounts ,even a loss for your kiwiwsaver account. the world cannot get better only worse under this type of greed. workers at this bank are being layed off to save money. it must stop or a few will end up with the lot and the rest will fight over the crumbs. the ceo doesn't even own the bank, greed.it is causing resentment and people like john key who made REPORTED $5 MILLION LAST YEAR is a PM that has cut jobs and put people on to welfare. no empathy just power struck.

Why are we still spending money on dirty petroleum and coal instead of employing people to develop renewable energy so plentiful in our country? It takes time but it will save us pollution and money in the end. Wind, solar, geothermal, tidal, hydro, biofuels from waste, - we have them all and people who can modify our engines. The money system will come round if we work it right.

I cheer on wealthy people.
They employ people and they put in the most $$ to run things that includes all welfare.
In the video they were chanting we want the power.
Well then go out take the risk and good luck to you.
It is not easy to get to the top. You dont get things handed to you. You dont have unions protecting you.
I just wonder if any of the people commenting on this have actually watched the whole video.
Interesting to say the least but not at all surprising.
Guess they were either unemployed or took the day of work.
Thats right up the employers eh!!

@katrina should I point to links where you say you run a small business?
3 percent of small business owners are in the top 1 percent of earners in the country... which is what is being prtested... how that 1 percent of overpriveldged children manipulate public perception to cause a breakdown in employment rights and opportunities... how they manipulate politicians into giving them concessions they bloody well dont deserve.
I have read your posts katrina... you are one of those manipulators who is causing an erosion in employment and social justice here in New Zealand.

Why dont the protester create a full scale riot during the Final, when Key and his drones are watching the game,Key would crap himself in front of a huge crowd,creating a huge stink for his visitors.

Clarke lay off the bul--hit. You are so ignorant, I am saying I was in downtown and did not see or hear a thing, maybe because of all the noise from the Rugby carry-on. I am not a corporate, I am sick of all your personal attacks especially when you do not know what your are talking about.

So Clarke, you heard it from where you live?!!!

Its sad but this is a protest movement that will fall on deaf ears while the head of corporate greed in New Zealand (John Key) remains in power.
And Katrina you wouldnt hear a thing, when it comes to peoples struggles you always remain deaf... you are one of those greedy corporates that are demanding the government abolish minimum wage.
When it comes to everyone elses struggles you remain blissfully ignorant.

What half-assed reporting. Like Will said, it's not 'anti-capitalism'. This is exactly why NZ news media and investigative journalism in this country is dead - it's all just sensationalism.
