Keep The Coal In The Hole

Why Southland Lignite Shouldn’t Be Mined!

Monday March 7th 6pm

Cityside, 8 Mt Eden Road, Newton

Coal Action Network presents Jeanette Fitzsimons on the proposed massive expansion of the coal industry and why it must not go ahead.

Solid Energy have applied for resource consent for the first phase of its plans to exploit billions of tonnes of dirty lignite coal in Southland. If they are allowed to go ahead this will dramatically raise New Zealand’s carbon emissions and will cause other major environmental and social consequences.

Come along for a presentation and discussion on what is happening and what you can do to be involved.
