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?
