Easter Monday protest against Fonterra’s new coal mine at Mangatawhiri

16 Apr

This Easter Monday Auckland Coal Action will be back at  Mangatawhiri to make thousands of motorists returning to Auckland aware of an impending climate crime.

Fonterra plans to dig a new coal mine at Mangatawhiri to supply heat for their operations but they could use wood waste instead of coal, greatly reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.

When?
Easter Monday 21 April, starting at 2pm

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

Who?
Auckland Coal Action is calling for the public to rally to protest Fonterra’s proposed new coal mine.

Where?
On the Auckland-bound side of State Highway 2 next to the site of the proposed new coal mine on the Mangatawhiri straight.

Meet after 2pm for roadside protest at the corner of Homestead Road (motorway overbridge) and Bell Road.

Coming from Auckland you will need to take the Mangatawhiri exit from State Highway 2 onto Mangatawhiri Road (incorrectly shown as Mangatangi Rd on Google Maps).

Coming from East, you will need to take the Golf Road exit.

What should I bring?

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

We have heaps of large banners for you to hold up.

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?
Yes. If you are returning from your holiday why not stop and join the rally? You will only be stuck in traffic anyway!

Support the campaign against new coal mines!
