Say no to alcohol next to Southern Cross Campus

In their stupidity, the goons at the Auckland District Licensing Committee have approved a new liquor shop directly opposite a large South Auckland school – the Southern Cross Campus. They approved it despite huge opposition from the community, the school, central and local-body politicians, the Medical Officer of Health and various community groups. The Campus educates pupils from year 1-13 – more than 1500 students attend the school. The new Thirsty Liquor shop will be directly opposite the sc
