Why won’t our officials react

The Police in NSW have moved on the smelly hippies from the Occupy Sydney protest this morning:

…when the activists refused to confine their protest to day time, police made the ”deliberate decision” to end it on Sunday morning, he added.

”It was time that we took steps to return Martin Place to the community of Sydney,” Murdoch said.

”They certainly can’t say they weren’t warned.”

The dawn raid was timed so that there would be a smaller group of protesters and so surrounding roads could be closed without causing traffic chaos, he said.

Forty people were arrested and 29 of those were issued with infringement notices for breaching a local government act, police said in a statement.

Four people are expected to be charged with assaulting police and seven were issued filed court attendance notices for breaching a local government act.

Meanwhile Lenient Len Brown is allowing protesters to stink up Aotea Square and erect illegal constructions against by-laws. They are still breaking by-laws in camping illegally on council land.

What is Len Brown doing to clean up Aotea Square and why haven’t our Police moved like in NSW?

Try putting up a paddling pool in suburban Auckland see how quick the council officials move in to stop you, but camp out in Aotea Square and hold up anti-capitalism signs and Lenient Len give you a free ride.
