Gloriavale leavers petition government, plan to protest
By Sally Murphy – 06/10/2020
There are growing calls for a wide-ranging government inquiry into the West Coast Christian community Gloriavale.
The Gloriavale Leavers’ Support Trust has started a petition this week urging the government to take action.
They’re also protesting outside The Press’ Leaders Debate in Christchurch tonight.
They say they are growing frustrated by the lack of action from any government agency in response to claims from those who have lived inside.
Abuse, unsafe work practices, poor education, oppression and lack of health services are all issues that have been raised.
