LISTEN: Petition calls for end to oil exploration

Mar 20th, 2018 | By | Category: Featured Article

Thousands are calling on the government to stop oil exploration.

Green Peace handed a 45,000 signature petition to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern outside parliament today, calling for an end the practice.

The petition is part of an ongoing campaign by Green Peace to move away from oil towards sustainable fuel sources.

Green Peace campaigner Kate Simcock says we need to stop burning fossil fuels if we’re going to avoid the worst effects of climate change.

She says the movement against oil exploration is strongly supported by many voices across the country.

Green Peace also has multiple activities planned for next week in response to the New Zealand Petroleum Conference.
