Watch: Brett Power arrested on parliament steps

Most Popular

The man who filed a court case against Health Minister Andrew Little on 4 February has been arrested by police trying to serve the documents at parliament today.

Brett Power filed his case against Little in New Plymouth (file number 220203/2237), seeking Little’s arrest for culpable homicide, in relation to actions taken during the COVID pandemic. If police fail to act, then citizens may prosecute the matter under the Crimes Act.

Power was filmed announcing to the protest crowd that he had the documents inside a small red suitcase, and that he was going to inside and serve them on Little. Throughout the speech he confirmed numerous times that he would not resist arrest, in line with the protest’s principle of non-violent opposition.

As Power attempts to walk through the police line, he is stopped. A ‘rugby maul’ ensues as the two lines (protesters and police) meet, but Power is eventually detained and led away by police.

DTNZ understands he has been released and trespassed from parliament’s grounds.

Convoy protest news

Our sources on the ground report the size of the encamped protest is growing and that there are reports that more police are being flown in this evening for a ‘showdown’ tonight.

  1. “…the protest’s principle of non-violent opposition…”

    That right there is why they won’t care.

    Sad that it’s come to this, but it’s the truth 🤷🏼‍♂️

    • The mob tried to break through police lines and storm Parliament and wanted to “hang em high” so is promoting violence and acting violently. You’ve lost, everyone thinks you’re dicks.

  2. Yup, you can tell who the trolls are from the REAL Kiwis. Civil disobedience should be the next step. Non-violence but civil disobedience. If there is a large enough group, we can win and we WILL win.

  3. We already are making headway. The very fact that the police are concentrated in Parliament rather than doing something about the increasing crime rate shows that the so-called ‘leaders’ of our country are getting scared, resorting to terrorist tactics.

    • They’re protecting the law abiding New Zealanders trying to live their lives from a bunch of violent thugs who want to overthrow the government because they’re afraid of needles. They’re heroes.

  4. Yes, agree when trolls appear in this type of forum is confirmation that they are getting concerned. People are quitting F**kbook, WhatsCrap, gobble data chrome, and using Duck Duck Go as search provider. Losing their mobile phones. They’re protesting law abiding New Zealanders trying to live their lives from a imposing dictatorship inciting fear of the common cold. The reality is Imacon is little worse than the common cold.
    They are selling and using your data against you. Funny thing about data. Garbage in garbage out. Done a survey or filled in a questionnaire lately? I have! All my answers have been opposite my reality of randon choice. They only asked me to complete the survey, or poll. Which I do.
