In only a few years, a full century will have passed since
World War 1 began; the "war to end all wars" as it was
described. Since then, many more battles have been fought,
several generations have passed and family memories recede.
To protest peacefully is a tenet of New Zealand
democracy. For two weeks the protesters have camped in
the Octagon, and peacefully aired their grievances against
capitalism and corporate greed in a peaceful manner.
