Will the anti-vaccine protesters crack? While they were camping for a week in the lawns of the New Zealand Parliament, in Wellington, the authorities tried to shock the protesters, Sunday 13 February, by broadcasting infernal music at the top of their voices, in particular Baby SharkAnd the macarena And the mandyfrom Manilo.
But hundreds of protesters, inspired by the Canadian “caravan of freedom,” danced in the mud to tunes meant to force them to disperse, and fought back with their favorite beats.

Supervisor Cory Parnell, chief of police in Wellington, New Zealand, did not appreciate the deceptive tactic taken by Parliament, which appears to have bolstered the protesters’ resolve.
“These are certainly not tactics or methodologies that we would like to advocate, and would have preferred that not happen,” He told Radio New Zealand, once again urging protesters to move the vehicles still blocking the streets.
Police have taken a non-violent approach since attempting to forcibly clear lawns on Thursday, which led to violent clashes and the arrest of more than 120 people, but they have strengthened the resolve of the protesters.
