Auckland Anniversary Day protest against new coal mine at Mangatawhiri

Looking for something fun, worthwhile, altruistic, artistically creative, and political, to do on the last day of Labour Weekend? Undecided what to do? Sad at the damage climate change is doing to our world?

Following on from our highly successful protests at EasterQueens Birthday Weekend and Labour Day seen by thousands of vehicles, we are returning to Mangatawhiri for an encore.

Why not join the fight against the number one preventable cause of global greenhouse gas emissions, coal?

When?
Auckland Anniversary day Monday 27 Jan, starting at 3pm

What?
Meet for a roadside rally against Fonterra’s proposed new coal mine.

Who?

What should I bring?

Sunblock, something to drink, rain gear and warm clothes. Check this website for updates.

What will I do?

There will be lots of returning holiday crowds for you to interact with, Bored out of their minds sitting in the traffic and interested by anything you do, to bring attention to the danger of coal to the environment.

Can anyone come?
