I hear that the Government’s proposal to allow mining on specially set aside conservation land has already attracted a staggering 10,000 submissions, the vast, vast bulk of which are opposed to this short-sighted, stupid idea.
A coalition of groups who care about our environment has come together to organise the ‘Don’t Undermine New Zealand’ march in Auckland on May 1st.
The protest will kick off at 11am at the bottom of Queen St.
The march is backed by The Federated Mountain Clubs of NZ, Greenpeace, Forest and Bird, Coromandel Watchdog, and the Environment and Conservation Organisations of Aotearoa New Zealand. You can help with the organisation by going to the website or throw you support behind the march by registering on the Facebook group.
It should be a great event.
Get out there and tell this government that some parts of our country are too precious to mine.
