    Police are reminding protestors Putiki Bay on Waiheke Island is an active construction site


    Mana whenua and supporters have been occupying the area for two months - in a bid to stop the development of a contentious marina.

    The group's urging the Police Commissioner to launch an inquiry over the rising number of officers on site and alleged excessive force.
