As well as the Aotearoa Not For Sale event, two other protests were occurring simultaneously in the Mall.

The first, by United Community Action Newtown (UCAN), were protesting at budget cutbacks to the Newtown Union Health Centre by the CCDHB.

UCAN organisor, Katie, and others from their group, handed out leaflets to passers-by, publicising cutbacks to their community health service,
