NZ Musician Erin "Against the Man"


Talented New Zealand Musician, Erin Crowley's music video "Against the Man" with footage from Otago protests 2014 against New Zealand's first ever permitted deep sea drilling wells. Erin says "I have worked hard to create something that will ignite that passion for kaitiakitanga."

Erin's music inspires us all to keep resisting the government's drive for revenue at the expense of our 'paradise homeland.' As she says "This is my homeland, and I'll make a stand. I don't want no man to take it away."

Your first stand against the man, VOTE!

Have a good think about your party vote this month. We know that the Green Party and Internet Mana have both committed to a moratorium on deep sea drilling.

Your second stand to protect our land, WRITE!

Tell the DCC you support their legislation to divest from fossil fuels. (dcc@dcc.govt.nz)(Facebook: Dunedin Divests)(Sign the Petition)

Your third stand to protect our freedoms, TELL SOMEONE!

Talk to your family and friends, stay informed, discuss this difficult moment in our history. If you'd liketo host us, Oil Free Otago can come give an informative presentation or help hang up a sign at your home. Ori if you want to get active in community events, contact us: oilfreeotago@gmail.com

Thank you Erin. We put our hands in your hands, and we will fight agains these plans auctioning off our seas!
