We chat to RNZ's Megan Whelan about why it made the decision and what it means for its audience.

RNZ adapts its charter, clarifies the commercial aspects of its multimedia vision

On 4 February, thousands of TPPA (Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement) protestors filed onto Auckland’s city streets carrying signs, chanting and blocking off access to motorway access points to mark their objection to the agreement as our government was putting pen to paper.
