The police said the 420 protests must be stopped and that they would be attending 420's from now on to arrest people who smoked cannabis. They came on Wednesday, 11 June and arrested one out of fifty people. But two days later on Friday, 13 June and one week later on Wednesday, 18 June there was no police presence and ~50 Otago University students openly smoked cannabis in defiance of unjust prohibition laws with no harassment from Police or Campus Watch. On this day, Julian Crawford, the Dunedin North candidate for the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party (ALCP) in the 2008 general election officially launched his campaign at the 420 protest and found many enthusiastic supporters. Part 2 is presented first as there were some technical difficulties which made part of the tape come out garbled. Watch part 2 first and then if you're really keen watch part 1.
What happened to the Police 'crack down' I wonder? Maybe the Police remembered that 'they have better things to do'.
