The Football Ferns took the knee before their game against Australia following the movement of NFL player Colin Kaepernick from 2016.

The movement has gone beyond the NFL and made it to England in the Premier League and Euros.

Emails released under the Official Information Act show the white privilege courses cost the Ministry of Education almost $700,000.

Other Government departments have been required to take part in the course.

Cabinet met yesterday to discuss potentially suspending the Trans-Tasman travel bubble in its entirety.

This is despite only three states being under lockdown.

Kainga Ora could be buying a second Rotorua motel.

The Crown agency paid $8.1 million to buy the Boulevard Motel and turn it into temporary accommodation for 80 people and plans to build more accommodation on the land.
