The Pride Parade Committee in Auckland does not allow policemen to appear in their uniform in uniform, despite 75 percent of Hui's people on Sunday night, complaining of a uniform ban on Auckland's board. The figure is uniformed officers marring at the International Pride Parade in Wellington since 2018.
At a long-colored community in Auckland, she broke a physical preoccupation to discuss the ban on uniforming police marches at the Pride Parade in 2019.
Tim Foote, the moderator, also asked the media to hand over some notes before pulling them out of a meeting at the Community Heating Center on Sunday night, attended by about 250 people.
The meeting was present as "emotional" and "circus".
The pride committee was excited when it announced a week that the police would no longer be allowed to marchet at the parade if they were wearing a uniform. Instead, the police are called to "wear shirts."

* The decision to ban the police uniform on the fascists of the Pride Parade, says Mika
* NZ Police and Pride Board in "negotiations" on a unique ban

* Pride, public relations and police
Several participants went out when a surprise between an elderly man and the founder of People Against Prison Aotearo was thrown out. The group "There is no pride in prisons" advocates that the police leave the parade.
Another participant, who asked not to be named in fear of repercussions, said for Things the meeting was a farce from the beginning to the end.
"I could not even see any good out of it," he said. "The number of people who attended and the facilitator was beautifully unprepared for dealing with a group of that size".
"At some point, someone said," Is there a chance that the board will decide on this meeting? "And the chair said" no, we will not, "about 15 people left."
He said that the room was about 25 percent in favor of the committee's position and 75 percent against.
"We left when the old gay amputated attacked a young trance [person], "said the man.
At that point, about 30 people left, he added.
"I do not know why he went after her, but he worked all over the" English speaking "routine, which did not go well, I think she told her, which started the fight then," he said. .
The board said last week that the decision to refuse uniformed police officers from parade was made for the safety of members of the LGBTKI + community.
Traci Phillips, coordinator of the New Zealand Diversification Service (DLO), responded by saying, "We certainly will not force our way, and we have downloaded that message because we are not welcome."
The decision has provoked anger in the community of debt, many of whom have said that it was looking at the long-standing values of pride of inclusiveness.
Philips said Things on Sunday night that she attended a meeting to listen, but did not expect a different outcome.
"It became pretty messy and we made a tactical retreat."
She said that the meeting did not change anything for the police and their participation in the Pride Parade in Auckland.
"When the committee said they were concerned that people were unsafe, we retreated, we do not feel people uncertain and we do not want to feel we are not welcome," she said.
"It did not change, and the position of the panel did not change."
On Facebook, while the meeting was still in progress, Rainbow Chief Executive Officer Michael Stevens said the organizers had underestimated the number of people who wanted to attend, and the meeting was a "bunch."
Stevens said that the Pride Committee "totally underestimated the depth of the division that they created by their decision. If that leads to the Paradise of pride, then God will help them."
Sources told Stoke that it was "the fastest meeting I've been on for so long."
"The committee will never change its decision … it is the first time that I came out in disgust."
Louisa Vall, MP for Manure, said she went to a meeting as a member of the community because she "wanted to understand how we got to this place."
Pride of Auckland's chairman, Cissi Rock did not manage to comment on Sunday night.
