No violence is acceptable

Green Party leader James Shaw was attacked on his way to parliament this morning.

. . .Wellington police Snr Sgt Matthew Morris said on Thursday the assault took place at around 7:50am outside the entrance to the Botanical Gardens in Wellington.

“We understand members of the public have assisted the victim and we believe there may also be other witnesses to the incident,” he said. . . 

No violence is acceptable and if this attack is politically motivated it’s even worse.

Facts and logic are the best weapons in a political argument. An inability to win with words is no justification for resorting to brute force.
