The supporters fight protesters from the anti-tour movement

Jaanie, Keppler and two others stayed at a motel in Gisborne and visited a lion safari park in Massey on their way there. They were bringing a large amount of money into the country, but did not bring it with them personally as they were worried about getting it through customs. After their arrival in Gisborne, the supporters went to the Gisborne Bar and Grill where they ended up in a confrontation with protesters from the anti-tour movement.[2]
