4th May 2010 NEW ZEALAND GOVERNMENT LOOKING TO MINE CONSERVATION LANDS.
The National Government of New Zealand is currently going through the process to enable legislature that will open up
conservation land for the purpose of mining.
Greenpeace, and other organisations, a body of 50,000 people swallowed Queen Street and marched to show their
opposition these plans. At Taranaki Vista we urge people to get on board and help oppose the Governments plans. Put a submission into the Government showing your opposition or sign a petition against mining. The Green Party at
already have submission forms available to be emailed in immediately straight to the Government; it's so easy and will show the National Party that the people of New Zealand are against mining.
NEW ZEALAND GOVERNMENT TO CONDONE INTERNATIONAL WHALING!
New Zealand Prime Minister John Key has made it clear through his recent comments that the New Zealand Government intends to support commercial whaling quotas at the next International Whaling Commission meeting in June. This is against the long held values of many New Zealanders that one whale killed for supposed "scientific" research is one whale too much. The Australian Government has already indicated that they intend to stand against any form of commercial whaling as they always have whereas John Key now going to condone the killing of these endangered innocent animals. The Green Party has excellent material on their website at www.greens.org.nz including petitions to sign, as does Greenpeace
