Walk The Talk at Mangatangi.
As desperate Pacific Islanders trying to save their nations from being destroyed by climate change battle Australian coal ships,
Be at Mangatangi this Labour Weekend Monday at 2pm to protest Fonterra’s planned new coal mine development.
Auckland Coal Action with the support of Mana and Green Party activists and local residents and Iwi have been fighting a two year battle against Fonterra’s plans to develop a new coal mine just south of Auckland.
Despite getting their resource consents to proceed 12 months ago, Fonterra in the face of stiff opposition and falling coal prices have not turned a single sod of earth on the site of their proposed mine. This has put them at least 25 months behind their own publicly announced schedule. Last month Fonterra spokesperson Stephanie Haliwell told a meeting of locals that Fonterra “may defer development of the mine.”
