Dunedin takes to the streets

Keeping neurosurgery in Dunedin makes sense.

Friday’s rally was huge. The ODT reports that up to 10,000 people marched. 

The greater Dunedin area has a population about 10 times smaller than metropolitan Auckland. 10,000 people turning out to march in protest here is equivalent to over 100,000 turning out there. Not even the impressive anti-mining protest there got close to that. The march on Friday is a clear statement that Dunedin is a community that cares about public services.

Turnout was a real credit to the people of Dunedin, to the power of the media to work for the good, to the mayors of Otago, to the organisers of the Facebook support page (12,000 members and counting), to participating unions, to the local MPs, and to countless others.

What a great city we live in.
