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.

One Room a Week...
I read in the news tonight that Auckland’s water usage has increased since the lockdown, and we are going to face mandatory water restrictions if we don’t curb our usage.
Water usage this week:
• Sunday: 464 million litres
• Monday: 466 million litres
• Tuesday: 485 million litres
• Wednesday: 480 million litres
Watercare's advice to Aucklanders
• Keep washing your hands regularly
• Keep your showers short: 4 minutes or less
• Only run your dishwasher or washing machine when they're full
• Don't wash the car or water the garden
• Don't waterblast the house or driveway
