Outside the Amora Hotel in Wellington a group of protestors hold placards protesting government cuts to the unemployment benefit.
A person speaks into a loudspeaker and says “…we are all vulnerable at times of our lives and we are entitled to support”.
Cars arrive, including a news crew vehicle.
The camera pans past placards whose statements include - “Parenting is a full time job”, “The poor can’t pay more”, “Invest in the disabled”.
Another man speaks angrily into a microphone, protestors draw slogans on the pavement, a voiceover by Tao Wells describes being threatened by security.
A member of the news crew asks a protestor why they are protesting, they reply because the welfare conference costs $895 a day to attend and “people can’t participate”.
