The debate rages on following this week's vocal anti-1080 protests in Whanganui but some of those involved have apologised for the actions of some of the protesters which included occupying the Chronicle's foyer.

Sharna Butcher was one of about 100 protesters gathered in Whanganui on Wednesday lobbying to ban the use of 1080 for pest eradication.

The long-time activist is a member of South Island-based group Ban 1080 lobbying to address the detrimental effects of the poison.

Butcher said she did not condone the actions of a rogue group of around 30 protesters who occupied the Whanganui Chronicle front office
