We've seen numbers in the media estimating that over 80,000 people attended the Auckland rally and march, and that countrywide the number is likely up around 170,000! That's 3.5% of our population! WOAH!
We are so impressed that SO many people came out to represent their families, friends, workplaces and ALL humankind today, not just in our city but of course all over the country and world!
These movements are heartwarming and give us hope, but we must remember that there is so much we can all do to help the current momentum lead to the action desperately needed. It's a long road ahead, but it's OUR road, and one we should all fight hard to stay on!
A special thanks to our amazing parents who brought their little bees down with them. The kids definitely made a big impact - they were surrounded by people wanting photos of them constantly - and considering they are the face of the future, we couldn't think of better people to hold hands (and signs!) with <3
