Two protests today successfully highlighted the role of New Zealand’s agricutural industry and business community in contributing to climate change.
The first protest involved a blockade of the NZ Stock Exchange entrance and resulted in nine arrests.
In the second action two activists scaled the building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade for four hours with a banner criticising Fonterra’s environmental record, while activists below blocked off Lambton Quay before being shoved back by police.
Below is some raw video footage we’ve been sent, as well as some pics (both largely of the second protest). Video is best if you blow it up to full screen:
