A sociologist says we can expect more protests.
The Prime Minister yesterday abandoned a scheduled press conference in Whanganui after about 250 protesters gathered outside a vaccination centre she planned to visit.
The day before, Ardern had moved a Northland press conference indoors after being heckled by activists.
On Saturday about five-thousand people gathered at the Auckland Domain and marched through the streets of Newmarket.
Massey University sociology professor Paul Spoonley told Kate Hawkesby as we head towards 90 percent vaccination, protests are becoming more public.
“They’re also going to disrupt others to make their point so yes, I think it will escalate.”
