Banners on the Beach – Say “No” To Deep See Oil

 

The Oil Free Seas flotilla is out at the drill site off the coast of Raglan taking a stand against risky exploratory deep sea oil drilling. We can’t leave them to confront Texan oil giant Anadarko alone!

And that’s where YOU come in. This is something that affects us all – so we need to stand together and draw a line in the sand to say “Stop Deep Sea Oil” so loudly that they’ll hear us in Texas!

Te Araroa Trail Against Seabed Mining

Tommaso Lizzi is walking the length of New Zealand by following the Te Araroa Trail.  On his travels he will be raising public awareness of seabed mining and encouraging more support for KASM.

Tommaso is a keen Italian tramper that is starting his long walk on the 13th of September.  Follow his progress on facebook ‘Te Araroa Trail Against Seabed Mining’.

The Te Araroa Trail is more then 3000 km long or the length of New Zealand.  Tommaso is starting from Cape Reinga and ending in Bluff, he will be discovering mountains, lakes, rivers, forests, towns and beaches. A long way to go, a long way to learn by nature.

We look forward to following your progress Tommaso!  Good luck and have fun!

Muriwai Public Meeting: Stop Deep Sea Oil Drilling

Muriwai residents express their thoughts very clearly

NEW PLYMOUTH PUBLIC MEETING

Our pristine ocean environments, surf breaks, fisheries and all marine species are under serious threat!

Learn of proposals to mine the seabed for iron sands on the west coast and the potential effects in terms of environment, economy and culture.

The entire seabed of the west coast from Whanganui to Cape Reinga is up for grabs as our government is encouraging and supporting large corporations and their seabed mining initiatives.

The benefits to local communities and our national economy are very doubtful while the environmental effects could be devastating for our coastlines and the species that inhabit our waters.

This is experimental mining on a huge scale and there is little scientific evidence of the predicted effects of these practices and no guarantee that it is safe for our beloved marine environment.

The first and precedent setting application to actually begin mining is expected from TTR in South Taranaki later this year.

Please join us at a one of two public meetings – New Plymouth and Hawera to share information, ask questions and find out how you can participate in the process.

Does it make good financial sense for NZ? NO! A measly 1 to 5% of the value of the resource 'may' see its way to NZ coffers. The rest goes overseas. Marine species will likely become extinct, the fisheries industry risks collapse and surf breaks will likely be altered forever.
