A law lecturer has come out against the arrest of anti-lockdown protesters in Auckland yesterday, Newsroom reports, calling it the death of democracy. Amy Benjamin, a lecturer of international law, went public with her take on the outcome of Thursday’s protest, calling the decision to go into a snap lockdown an “insane policy that probably amounts to a crime against humanity”. It’s not the first time Benjamin has taken flack for courting controversy, she also made the demonstrably false claim that Covid-19 can be treated with ivermectin.
