I've just painted my virtual placard for the March Against Mining at
www.dontunderminenz.org - it's fun, you should try it.
It's also a serious issue.
The NZ Govt has plans to open up our best conservation areas to mining. We are at a crossroads. Do we value and protect New Zealand's unique ecology and land, or do we squander it for a quick buck?
On May 1st we will March Against Mining at 11am from Lower Queen St in Auckland with Greenpeace, Forest & Bird, Federated Mountain clubs and several other groups to show the Government that Kiwis want long term sustainability not short term profit - and not mining in conservation areas.
If you can't be there in person, you can paint a virtual placard by
