Multiple MPs’ offices in Auckland have been vandalised overnight by a group protesting the military conflict in Gaza in the Middle East.
National Party leader and incoming Prime Minister Christopher Luxon’s Botany electorate office is among those splashed with red paint on November 23 by the group Tamaki for Palestine.
ACT Party leader David Seymour’s Epsom office and numerous other National Party MPs’ offices were targeted also.
News media reported the group sent a press release about their actions saying the National and ACT politicians are “complicit in the deaths of thousands in Gaza” and the paint represents them having ”blood on their hands”.
Labour Party leader Chris Hipkins called for a ceasefire in the conflict earlier this week.
Israel has been carrying out a military action in Gaza since a terror attack by the Palestinian militant group Hamas claimed the lives of about 1200 people on October 7.
The red paint thrown on Luxon’s office was quickly removed.
