C4FFF protest at Matiatia

This morning a small contingent from the Campaign 4 Fair Ferry Fares protested the 1 October fare rises by Fullers at the Matiatia wharf. Waiheke Board candidate Ewen Sutherland (right) joined the protest and Waitemata Council candidate Alex Swney (not pictured) looked on in sympathy. A Waiheke Marketplace journalist was in attendance.
The NZ Herald picked up on the issue too. Pity they swallowed Fullers' spin wholesale.

UPDATE: Marketplace report here

It was noticeable that Fullers were 'unavailable for comment' though. The journalist did the normal thing of presenting both 'sides', but I thought the facts spoke for themselves!
