ler runs a stall at the Matamata Market to raise money for the campaign.
Next week’s rally is the first major protest she has been involved with and she said it had taken a lot of hard work to put it together.
“I have been busy promoting it on Facebook and I am getting flyers made up to put up.

Ms Miller’s aim was to get 50 to 60 people along to the protest at the ASB Bank Centre and said she had 55 people RSVP on Facebook so far.
