Teachers go on strike

Teachers gather outside the Levin Memorial Hall for their march across town. The caption of the photo on the front page of Wednesday’s Horowhenua Chronicle referred to air force personnel when in fact the two officers in the photo are Fire and Emergency New Zealand volunteer Recruit Nikki Liverton and Senior Firefighter Andy Collins. The Chronicle apologies for that error. Both are wearing on their right side UFBA 5 year medals from firefighters who served in World War I as a mark of respect for fallen comrades. They decided to wear these to show they were not forgotten. Andy Collins has also served in the military and is wearing his service medals. They laid a wreath on behalf of all Fire and Emergency New Zealand volunteers and career staff at the Levin commemorations of Armistice Day last Sunday.

Horowhenua members of the teachers’ union NZEI march through Levin.


There was support from the public.
