The protester who has reportedly been protesting silently around Wellington for weeks has died in hospital after he set himself on fire on the Parliament grounds yesterday.
Witnesses previous to the incident said he was holding up a sign that was hard to understand. They say it was something to to with the rights of men but are not certain exactly what for. The text said “ISSUE IS NOT TO TAKE CHILDREN’S MOTHER AWAY. ENOUGH MURDERING FATHER CULT & LAWYERS.”
Police are conducting enquiries on behalf of the coroner.
