There were a couple of actions on the Shore but I wanted to go to the main events in Auckland – that meant crossing the harbour with my bike. I was running late so I had to catch the ferry ($5.50!!!) to Britomart. Here people were forming up in to a giant 350 with bicycles.
Meanwhile I had to fend off people handing out Socialist Worker propaganda. Eventually the 350 was made and the column set off around town. Most of the organisers were American or Canadian.
At Mt Eden the cyclists linked up with the Maunga action group making noise for lowering CO2.
This fared a bit better and made a few minutes on TV. After this there was a big gathering but I had to start cycling back home, since the last ferry had left Auckland at 4 pm, meaning I had to take the 35km Greenhithe route.
One day I’ll cycle over that bridge . . .
