Protest at Fonterra HQ in Auckland Wednesday

15 Oct

FonterraHQProtestAuckland Coal Action will be meeting 4.00 pm this Wednesday 16th, outside the main entrance to the Maidment Theatre, Auckland University Quad, Alfred St to deliver wood chips to Fonterra’s Headquarters in Princes St to protest the likely approval of Fonterra’s new mine at Mangatangi, 50km south of Auckland.

Coal is one of the dirtiest fossil fuels and leading climate scientists have stated that coal usage must be phased out as soon as possible in order to prevent catastrophic global warming.

Fonterra plans to open a new mine to continue supplying coal to its existing operations in the Waikato, even though wood waste is a viable alternative.

Fonterra and other companies have sat on their hands for twenty years and the need for action is now extremely urgent.

Join us to deliver the message: Fonterra must commit to wood waste now!
