Christchurch Still Trying to Recover after 2011 earthquake (ABC Australia): See http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/content/2015/s4408012.htm
“As you are probably aware by now a protest is taking place on Sunday 21 Feb at noon in Cathedral Square. please read the flyer below and distribute it electronically far and wide. Many community groups have been informed about this protest and the word is going out EVERYWHERE. I am glad that many people on this page are getting somewhere at last with their Insurance claims. Indeed many of you are at long last, living in new or repaired houses and goodness knows you deserve it after the protracted struggles to finally get what you were always entitled to anyway.
However, YOU are still needed!
Although thankfully you may be sorted or on your way, there are still many, many fully insured homeowners who are still at the mercy of this ripoff and its multitude of lies. Many of these people are vulnerable and elderly, they are less able than some of us to fight for so long and have already endured the injustices of the last 5 years. Some still can’t come to terms with what their own government / IC is doing after years of diligently paying their premiums.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
We ask you to join with us and many others for a short time at this protest to loudly voice your disgust, support your less able citizens and embarrass those entities who have branded these disenfranchised people as just a “few carpers and moaners”!(See http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/christchurch-earthquake-2011/7656654/Brownlee-fed-up-with-moaning-residents).
We must gather together and show them just how many of us there are, who think that the insurance debacle here in Christchurch was, and continues to be,
UNJUST ! The situation is so dire for some of these folk that it has now become our civic duty to Act! Please BE THERE IN THE SQUARE!” Percy Sugden
