The forces of the State don’t want independent media there reporting, only the TV1 and Newshub crews who can be relied upon to report the official government version only.
Counterspin Media were told to Stuff off by members of the Coster Mob, to be expected maybe as this government and its Mob Leader don’t like them, but so has Mana News, run by Maori who you might think (based on its pretence) this government would be favourable towards. But no, same treatment. “We decide what grievances you can present to the public” seems to be this government’s attitude.

For whatever reason, the powers that be are not only not reporting the truth of what is going on, but now there are active moves to stop those reporting.
We have experienced several issues with keeping this video up, facebook banning it from being shared by some peoples reports, adding restrictions, not allowing us to pin it (original)….
Please share it, has been downloaded and re-uploaded so we try again.

So they gave up that easily? Have they heard of this new invention called a helicopter at all? Are all the back roads blocked by the Gestapo? Boats are good for D-Day landings. If you are going to do something, don’t cry about not being able to. “Just Do It”…

It’s not just a matter of giving up, but the big problem is this government’s Facebook monitors / controllers trying to prevent them posting what they do capture.
