The one tonight is launching a petition about Democracy in Chch (I think) so not directly about the school thing.

the one this evening at 5:30pm is at the bridge of remembrance, its a pro-democracy & pro-consultation rally

Tonight's rally is to celebrate the 20 year fight by NZ suffragettesled by Kate Sheppard. An Electoral bill was passed in September 1893 that gave all New Zealand women the vote, the first in the world. To celebrate democracy. It's also to protest the erosion of democracy in Christchurch since September 2011.
Suffrage Day is celebrated every year on this day.

surprisingly well-attended, considering the time of day and at short notice

even more interestingly, a huge cross section of ages and apparent political loyalties

The Saturday Rally had better have double the numbers, being a weekend day.
