Me and the kids joined the #TPPANoWay march in Featherston on Saturday 15th August, one of the dozens of marches planned across the country during TPPA Action Week (8th – 15th August 2015). I took along the recorder on the off chance I could capture some audio at the same time as attending to Isla (6) and Flo’s (3.5) many requirements for a happy protest – plenty of snacks, frequent nose wiping, and much zipping and unzipping of coats!
This is a modest featurette at only 9min and 13secs, but I hope this piece gives you a sense of the energy, positive vibe and hope of those I spoke to in Featherston that we can make a difference, that we can make our voices heard!
My huge thanks to the wonderful people of Featherston and the Wairarapa, including John Hart, Jade Holley, Steve Hart and a nice bloke called Dave. And of course huge high 5’s to Isla and Flo on their first ever political rally!
