The prime minister has stated that the protest organised and hosted by Destiny Church leader Brian Tamaki on Saturday was “a slap in the face” for Aucklanders who were complying with level 3 rules, RNZ reveals. Uup to 2000 people demonstrated against lockdowns in Auckland’s Domain, and Destiny Church is planning two more rallies against pandemic lockdowns later this month. Jacinda Ardern said, “…it was wrong, obviously it was illegal but also it was morally wrong.” Dr Ashley Bloomfield had a similar response: “…it’s frustrating and disappointing.”
