Apparently There is a hiccup in bringing a resolution of the "occupy" movement's utilisation of Auckland's Aotea Square.
As in Dunedin the Police see a comflict between the Bill Of Rights Act and local authority Bylaws where they, the Police decline to act following the council issuing a trespass notice.
Now the word was a month ago that the protesters would depart following the election but that does not seem to be happening.
Maybe the councils could try lobbying central government to force the occupiers to stay there indefinitly by way of emergency legislation then fence them in.
Might be the cheaper option.
