Protestors concerned about the United Nations Global Compact on Migration have gathered in Auckland this afternoon to let the government know they don't want it to sign the agreement.

Today's demonstration is in the Prime Minister's Mt Albert electorate, outside her offices on New North Road in Morningside, and runs through until 4pm.

Many of those attending are wearing yellow vests.

Last Saturday more than 400 people rallied in downtown Auckland against the compact.

The compact is due to be signed in Morocco on Monday.
