A protest movement against the vaccine mandate has gained a large following on Facebook, with plans to undertake a Hikoi to Waitangi on 26 October.
The group known as the ‘Sovereign Hikoi of Truth’ (or S.H.O.T) has accumulated more than 6,000 followers since it was created just two days ago.
In a video posted by one of its Admins, Carlene Louise, the group is calling on New Zealanders of all races, religions and backgrounds to join the Hikoi and come together to oppose the government’s vaccine mandate. She also accuses her iwi’s leaders of receiving ‘millions upon millions’ of dollars from the government to roll out the vaccine programme.
