Josephine Bartley, ward councillor for the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki local board, says she was targeted on Sunday after she described the smashing of Pasefika Family Health Group’s front window in Panmure as “unacceptable”, Newshub reveals. While there was plenty of vitriol, her community rallied around her to ensure she was well-protected. “I’ve been receiving hate and online abuse since this lockdown started… but yesterday was the first time I’d faced the hate in person,” Bartley said. She was moved to tears by the acts of community kindness – particularly by the sight of a security guard stationed outside her home.
