i thought a public place in where people can go. i thought it is people's human right to be able to go to a public place. auckland city council is taking people to court because they busk in a public place. this is ridiculous. what a waste of ratepayers money.
busking should be allowed in any public place as long as they are not blocking the entire footpath and shops nearby can still hear themselves and their customers speak.
what is more amazing is that auckland city council wants to ban these people from using dvds and laptops in public places. so they won't be able to sit in a park in the city and use a 3g card to access the internet with their laptop.
i thought john banks as mayor would be different but it seems auckland city council wants to breach people's human rights.
