About time

The Herald reports:

Two men have appeared in court in connection with an incident in which an Auckland office was stormed and staff forcefully dragged out by a group in an apparent land claim.

, 66, and John Murray Monga, 50, both of South Auckland, were arrested on Friday following the the drama at the Tournament Parking office on Cook Street on Monday.

The two men faced charges of trespass, forcible entry and assault, police said. Police are continuing to search for a number of others in relation to the incident and further arrests are anticipated.

Good. Peaceful protest is one thing. Violent evictions are another.

The men appeared seperately at Auckland District Court. They represented themselves and protested loudly during their appearance. The pair were remanded in jail to reappear on Monday morning.

Excellent – consequences.
