Saturday 08 December 2012 12:00 and repeated at 5pm – Ani Pahuru-Huriwai, Petrobras

Ani Pahuru-Huriwai, Brazilian oil giant Petrobras has pulled out of Aotearoa and handed back its NZ prospecting licenses to the government. The state run energy company with sales in the vicinity of $150 billion annually had plans to invest up to $300 million over the next 3 years in exploration and drilling. Treaty Minister Chris Finlayson says the government are hoping another company will pick up the returned licenses and will carry on the work done by Petrobras. The Minister is adamant the decision Petrobras has made to pullout had nothing to do with the opposition from the likes of Greenpeace and mana whenua Te Whanau aa Apanui.

Ngawai Herewini speaks with Ani Pahuru-Huriwai from Hicks Bay, Ani is someone who was in the front trenches during the protest action and is a founding member and spokeswoman of the anti-exploration Ahi Ka Action Group. Ani is regarded by many as a leading authority on the possible environmental impact oil exploration and drilling would have in the Te Tai Rawhiti region.

Ngawai asks is the battle over or will another global drilling company just come in and pick up where Petrobras left off. What have the protesters learned about combating the next multi – national fracking outfit that turns up on Aotearoa's doorstep wanting it's resources?

Gordon Campbell:
On Pharmac, Gough Whitlam And Sleater-Kinney

Ridiculous reported comments on RNZ this morning by Trade Minister Tim Groser, as he sought to dampen down concerns about the leaked draft of the IP chapter of ther Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations. According to Groser, ‘extreme’ positions are common at the outset of negotiations, and these get whittled down over the course of negotiations. Fine.

Except that we’re not at the outset of these negotiations. The outset was six years ago, and negotiators were hoping to have some sort of ‘framework’ deal finished in time for the APEC meeting in a few weeks’ time. These ‘extreme’ positions are what we’ve reached near the intended end of the negotiations.

Still, Groser did promise that the cost of medicines would not rise as a result of the TPP trade deal. Great. But this is not what politicians in other countries are saying. More>>
