Medical cannabis patients, caregivers, family and supporters will rally in Aotea Square this Saturday 22nd April before marching down Queen Street at 1pm.
The rally and march were announced by Auckland Patient's Group (APG) in response to recent police raids on patients and Prime Minister Bill English's confirmation his National-led Government would oppose any law change.
“Every day that goes by is another day of suffering and criminalisation for many thousands of patients in New Zealand,” said Pearl Schomburg, convener of Auckland Patients’ Group, a community group of patients, caregivers and medical cannabis advocates based in Auckland.
APG promotes safe legal access to affordable natural cannabis for wellness purposes.
‘We are marching to show Bill English that we do not condone his callous and inhumane attitude towards patients. We demand an immediate moratorium on prosecuting patients and supporters until this fiasco is resolved.”
Rally at 12 noon. March at 1pm.
Presented by: Auckland Patients Group, with support from NORML and The Hempstore.
