Polynesian Panthers plaque gone walkabout?

Nayte from Grey Lynn

Hi all. I've walked shuttles up and down Three Lamps looking for the "Polynesian Panther Party" commemorative plaque from 2016 on one of the shop fronts, and could not see any trace of it at all.

Hi all. I've walked shuttles up and down Three Lamps looking for the "Polynesian Panther Party" commemorative plaque from 2016 on one of the shop fronts, and could not see any trace of it at all.
It's such significant piece of history here in Central Auckland, especially for the Pacific community that still reside here, and I hope nobody has done away with it or defaced it to the point it had to be removed.
From photos I've seen, the plaque sat between the ASB branch on Ponsonby and Encore Fashion. Any help on where it is or at least what happened to it would be great! Attached are pics that I derived my plaque placement theory from plus the original article.
Thanks!

First, we look at the foundations of establishing a successful hospitality business -
- the concept
- the important sales to ingredient cost rations
- staffing levels

SETTING UP
We look at key information regarding the physical setup of a business. Starting with important information from Auckland Council, or your local council, about zoning for a location and approvals for alterations to a building, formulating a food control plan, getting approval for an alcohol licence.
We then look at the equipment you may need to use and commercial kitchen food safety requirements - from refrigeration and extraction systems to types of ovens and coffee machines, flooring and much more.

HOW TO COST
We will discuss look models of how to calculate what you should sell your product for - the retail margins, as well as the cost breakdown as well, has how you are going to pay your self.
Lots to think about and learn in this one day workshop.
Celia Hay, director of the New Zealand School of Food and Wine and hospitality entrepreneur having established 10 different business and has a wealth of knowledge about how to establish and then grow a business.

Save oUr Native Forest

Gael from Westmere

There's a native forest beneath the canopy of Western Springs that will be destroyed if Council have their way.

Experts have proved that only a wee bit of maintenance is required to get it safe but Auckland Council have not done that since the damage from the 10 April 2018 storm but have instead kept the forest path closed in a hope that this propaganda will convince you otherwise. All that's required is some work to about a dozen trees and it will be as safe as houses.
Their planned destruction is now just about them winning, IMO. This will cost over $760,000 (according to WLB agenda for Tuesday's public meeting) to leave the area without bird habitat for over 50 years. Currently this is the homeof numerous bird species - tui, fantail, morepork, kingfisher, rosella, thrush, blackbird, waxeyes, shags, herons and visits from royal spoonbills and possibly kaka. The plan is to fell and leave 218 trees of about 40 metres on site. Leaving a fire hazard, an eyesore and little room to plant IMO.
The plan shown is an accurate plan of the carnage that will be caused by 'clear felling'
Help us stop this waste of public money and unnecessary destruction by signing, please.
