Ka Nui! Enough!

Kia Ora Friends,

In August the New Zealand mining industry is meeting here “to celebrate New Zealand mining and the contribution this important industry makes to the future of the community through science, engineering and economic development.” So we are meeting at the same time here to discuss the huge negative impacts mining has on our economies, communities, and environment and what we are going to do about it.

Ka Nui! Enough!

The extractive industries, including fracking, mining & oil drilling,have huge negative impacts on our economies,communities & environment.

We must move past this in a way that is just for all. Join us to learn more and strategise together.
