Mining industry delegates greeted by protesters on tour of Rotowaru and K1

18 Sep

Delegates from the AusIMM (Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy) conference were taken on a field trip to Rotowaro and Maramarua (K1) mines on Sunday 16 September.

At both venues they were met by protesters with the clear message that the coal must be kept underground for the sake of the climate.

This action was a joint effort between Auckland Coal Action, Coal Action Network Aotearoa with support also from Auckland Peace Action and Auckland 350.org.

The conference is being held in Tauranga on Monday and Tuesday of this week.
