Creative protest by New Zealanders to avoid ban on alcohol drinking in public places A ban on alcohol drinking, during the New Year Eve which often lead to arrest or the fine up to $250 (£130; US$180) by the government of New Zealand provoked a group of New Zealanders to make a creative protest to avoid the ban on drinking in the public places.



The group built the structure at low tide in the Tairua estuary on the Coromandel peninsula on Sunday afternoon and they there installed a picnic table and ice box for drinks.



The local people of New Zealand joked that they were in “international waters” and thus exempt from an official liquor ban.



The group drank into the night on New Year’s Eve, watching the fireworks and the construction of the small island in the low tide was still intact on Monday morning. But authorities seemed to be taking the initiative in light-hearted spirit.



Noddy Watts, one of the organizer said that alcohol ban was not working and was simply resulting in swathes of arrests of local teens and the local police were dealing with the youngs, making a mayhem in the New Year.



The police were getting frustrated with the result and said it has to change.
