Ka Nui! Enough Extraction Conference This Month

Ka Nui! Enough Extraction Conference This Month

Coromandel Watchdog has teamed up with other groups around the country to host the Ka Nui! Enough! Conference in Rotorua this month.

“This will be a place to discuss the real impacts of mining on our economies, communities, and environment. We will also talk about how we can all work together to protect our special places and people throughout Aotearoa,” said Coromandel Watchdog Coordinator Renee Annan.

This conference coincides with the New Zealand mineral industry conference sponsered by corporations like Newmont Gold, Oceana Gold, Bathurst Resources and Solid Energy.

Potential gold mining is one of the biggest threats to Coromandel communities. There is over 80000HA worth of land covered by exploration and prospecting permits on the peninsula including in conservation and Schedule 4 land. Newmont is also continuing to expand in the residential area of Waihi, with residents living with ongoing impacts from the mines.

“We will be sending a clear message at this counter-conference: we have had enough!” said Ms Annan. “This will be an excellent opportunity to network with people from other communities that are in similar situations and are also committed to moving forward sustainably.”

Gordon Campbell: On The Skewed Media Coverage Of Gaza

Now that he’s back as Foreign Minister, maybe Winston Peters should start reading the MFAT website which is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of how Kiwis alerted the rest of the world to the genocide in Rwanda. How times have changed ...

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.

ACT: Call To Abolish Human Rights Commission

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal.
