Protesting Paula's War on the Poor, Mt Albert Baptist Church

 Unite Waitemata members and supporters protested outside the Mt Albert Baptist Church last Friday, where  Paula Bennet  had been invited to speak to  National Party Supporters. Whilst Paula boasted  about how she had personally  stopped  the benefit of a woman who was wanted by the police (-  before  the new Social Security legislation made this legal- ), the church doors were locked, preventing people getting either in or out.  There seems to be quite a political divide in Mt Albert.  Some passers by were sympathetic , including an Indian couple who were solid Labour voters. Others were hostile eg  yelling out "somebody has to keep them in line!" in response to our banner "John Key Don't Bash Mothers and Babies."
