Letters delivered by tractor
Groundswell NZ leaders returned to Wellington – to deliver some mail. More than 8000 letters from the group’s supporters were delivered by tractor to Parliament yesterday afternoon, destined for Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor’s office. Groundswell NZ leader Bryce McKenzie said: ‘‘Eight thousand letters is a lot of weight. It was four big boxes full. It was a bit of fun. The tractor rolled down the street, we unloaded the boxes, there were a couple of speeches and the dogs had a bit of a bark-up.’’ Groundswell NZ has held two nationwide protests asking for changes to eight areas of government policy.
