On Thursday 8 August, Simon Bridges, Minister of Energy and Resources is going to the mining club, Straterra, to “discuss how he sees the energy and resources portfolio evolving and his views on challenges facing the minerals industry.” He’s speaking at Straterra at 4:45pm.Let’s tell him what those challenges are. Let’s remind him of the damage the mining he supports is doing:
- The Denniston Plateau (under threat from open cast coal mining by Bathurst Resources).
- The Pegasus Basin (under threat from Deep Sea Oil drilling by Anadarko).
- Taranaki (where farmland is poisoned by fracking).
Join other Wellingtonians in a demonstration against the Government’s mining agenda.
When: 4:30-6:30 Thursday 8th August
