Auckland City Harbour News - - OPINION -

The shop­keep­ers are not see­ing the big­ger pic­ture and are look­ing at short-term so­lu­tions. Th­ese for­got­ten peo­ple can­not be just swept un­der the car­pet. They will not go away un­til the prob­lem is ad­dressed and solved.

The street peo­ple are our con­science and a con­stant re­minder of a dys­func­tional so­ci­ety mo­ti­vated by prof­its and one that puts prof­its be­fore the men­tal well be­ing and safety of vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple.

I im­plore the com­mu­nity to come to­gether to de­mand a so­lu­tion.
