New Zealanders love their movies, love Peter Jackson, and have sided with Jackson against film-related trade unions who were protesting working conditions for the shooting of a proposed two-film series about Hobbits.  Jackson filmed the original Lord of the Rings trilogy in New Zealand, but when the unions gave Jackson a hard time this time around, he declared that he would take his production off the island nation.  When New Zealanders made their displeasure known, the unions backed down, and they staged protests of their own against the unions.  Such a protest was seen yesterday when people dressed as Middle Earth characters marched while carrying signs that said "New Zealand is Middle Earth" and "We Love Hobbits".  Jackson, Warner Brothers officials, and members of the New Zealand government are meeting tomorrow to discuss final plans that will decide if the films will be made in New Zealand.
