Protesters at Parliament are disappointed no one from the Government's come down to talk to them yet. 

It's the tenth day of the demonstrations and the lawn in front of Parliament is still filled with tents and the nearby streets are blocked with 450 vehicles. 

Protester liaison, Leighton Baker, told Mike Hosking tens of thousands of businesses have been affected by the vaccine mandates, and they all want change. 

“What’s most disappointing is that no one in the Government will actually come down and talk to people who pay their wages that they’re supposed to represent.” 

Leighton Baker is the former leader of the New Conservatives and represents a raft of groups involved in the protest including The Freedom Alliance, New Zealand Doctors Speaking Out with Science, Outdoors & Freedom Movement, The Freedom and Rights Coalition and Voices for Freedom.
