Atheist billboard campaign (2nd of 2)

Atheist billboard campaign

After the New Zealand campaign to display atheist messages on buses ran into resistance from a bus company in early 2010, organisers turned to billboards in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. This one appeared in Wellington. It was one of three designs similar to those used on UK buses. The other two read: 'Good without God? Over one million Kiwis are.'
