The Garden City's becoming more like 'Protest City' as frustration grows over lack of action and communication from authorities.
Tomorrow marks two years since the September 2010 earthquake.
Another demonstration was held in Christchurch over the weekend, this one targeting EQC, CERA and insurance companies.
City Councillor Glen Livingstone says this is becoming the norm as people try to get their voices heard.
"People will continue to protest, there'll be new energy pop up for those who are feeling tired and I think that that will help to lift people."
He says he doesn't normally kick up a fuss but he sympathises with the cause.
"I'm not a serial protestor at all usually but I've never been on so many protests all my life. As someone once said to me, the more you suppress the people, the more they rebel. And that's really how I see it - the people are feeling pushed down and so they're trying to push back up again."
And Mayor Bob Parker thinks it's a good thing.
"It's important that the issues are talked about and I think it's really important for people to get pressure on the system so it's a healthy and natural response to what is a very frustrating situation."
