Polite and passionate protest in pictures.

Staff and students from different university faculties united, this afternoon, in peaceful protest against academic restructuring of certain faculties. One of those, in particular, stands to lose the identity they have only recently become to call their own. Not a big deal to most, I guess, but this faculty is Indigenous, and fought long and hard to bare its name and become its own entity. Stand in its own light.

It stands to lose it again – but not without us standing in front of it first.

Ka whawhai tonu mātou!

Ake! Ake! Ake!
