The tents can stay but the vehicles around Parliament must move. 

Protesters are still camping on the lawn in front of the Beehive, while 450 of their vehicles are jamming the surrounding streets. 

Police Association President Chris Cahill reckons protesters will still be there in three months. 

He told Mike Hosking a group of people sitting in tents won't change the world and can be left there. 

“The vehicles that are blocking other businesses and stopping New Zealanders go about their business, that’s a different kettle of fish and police have to deal with that.”
