Students from more than 10 Upper Hutt schools performed a haka as a convoy of motorcyclists and police rolled past.

The riders were promoting White Ribbon, which encourages men to end violence towards women.

On Monday about 1pm a police escort led a convoy of motorcyclists along Fergusson Dr past groups from local schools to Orongomai Marae.

Patriots member Aaron Morrison said men wanted to live non- violent lives but sometimes they needed to be shown how.

"We hope to talk directly to those men who want to stand up and lead a movement of non- violence." The group gathered at the marae before leaving for Wairarapa.
