The following news is from the latest issue of Greenpeace Online Magazine. It related to the No Mining Campaign that Lucy was involved in.
Anti-Mining Campaign 2010 "Don't Undermine New Zealand"
Ours, not mine
In 2010 we all celebrated victory when the Government said it would not modify Schedule Four, and that it would let the public have say on any applications to mine public conservation land.
Now, however, the Government has gone back on its word.
Bathurst Resources, an Australian company, is planning to turn the unique Denniston plateau into an enormous 140 hectare open-cast coal mine. On the first day of its second term, Conservation Minister Kate Wilkinson said that she would not allow public submissions on Bathurst Resources' application to create an access road. The mine itself has already been consented. Greenpeace will support efforts to stop the destruction of this unique area.
