Title: students march on police station
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10754503

I was there.

Obviously the government-leaning newspaper didn't cast us in a very good light. You can tell by looking at the contrast between the first and the last sentence (humorising/mocking to begin with, then the actual point at the end)

Also, the numbers were horrendously under reported. 60? More like 300. We probably had over 500-1000 initially at the rally before the sit-in.

In other news (how appropriate):

- Still a lot to study, and still taking on too much extracurricular work.
- Doing a demo debate for another university tomorrow, who wants to start their own debating society. (topic: legalisation of all drugs)
- Also, our university is introduing a queer rights officer. Might run for it.

That is all. Goodbye.

Keep your head up,

if I recall correctly it was Mahatma Gandhi who said:

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.".

Thanks. Unfortunately the

Thanks. Unfortunately the bill will most likely pass. The majority of students are too apathetic to care. What a shame.
