New Zealand’s first ‘gravel war’ has taken place across the country, with people throwing gravel over each other as tensions remain high.
The New Zealand Herald reports a woman who is an experienced gravel warmer says she has “never seen anything like it”.
“I’ve seen people throw gravel over people and stuff, people are just getting frustrated and it’s not good for anyone,” Ms O’Hara said.
“The only way to make things better is to actually get to know each other and not have that one-upmanship.
She said she has heard from some gravel warblers who said the country was “going to hell”.
Ms O’Lara said the “war” has caused her some anxiety, but she is optimistic about the country’s future.
In the early 2000s, Ms O’thera and her friends went to the Gold Coast to rock out with friends and family.
They spent the day in the beach area, and when the sun was high the group headed to the beach to relax.
When the sun came down, Ms Parelli’s group decided to head back to her hometown of Waikato.
Ms Parello said she and her friend were “frightened” when they got home, but Ms O’s group was “a lot more relaxed”.
She described how the women felt the war was “the worst they’ve ever seen”.”
I thought ‘that’s it’, we’ve all been through it,” Ms Paredo said.”
It’s a bit like watching a train wreck.
You don’t know what’s going to happen.
“Ms Paredol said while she was “really shocked” at the experience, she still believes New Zealand is in good hands.
After the incident, Ms Waddell and her group decided they wanted to “fight back” and had “a really good time”.
They were “really nervous, but we’re not going to let it stop us”.
It is “just a matter of time” before the war returns to Waikatips, Ms Tarrant said.
