pacific march

this is awesome:

because political activism and organisation are the first step towards solving the problems in the poster.  it's also great to see a sector that definitely doesn't get enough representation in decision-making structures within this country, stepping out to be heard and to be included.  more power to them.

ETA:  useful piece from tagata pasifika on the march:

Something I found really interesting (and rad) about the Pasifika march is that it's the first time in a long while that anyone has publicly protested the fact that poverty and wealth are systemicly distributed by ethnicity. For whatever reason, this kind of analysis has fallen off the radar - it's just been unfashionable to say it, except with case-by-case references to things like educational attainment or health status. Courageous!
