The Wellington protest has wrapped up peacefully.
Around 2000 people marched from Civic Square to Parliament today as part of Brian Tamaki's Freedom and Rights Coalition demonstration.
Police say 100 officers were on duty, with no reported issues.
Roads around Parliament had been shut off due to the protest, with office workers warned to work from home today.
Tamaki says the police and media overreacted.
"I always said that it was going to be peaceful and respectful to these people in Wellington's central business district- and it was."
