Mi è arrivato questo messaggio da Nick Young di Greenpeace NZ

Last week Sign On ambassadors Lucy Lawless and Robyn Malcolm visited the West Coast to check out the Paparoa National Park -- one of the proposed Schedule 4 mining sites.

Lucy said: "Energy Minister Gerry Brownlee reckons coal is "sexy", so Robyn and I have put together this little video as a tribute to its sexiness. Check it out (if you're over 18!!)."

You have to see it to believe it:
http://www.dontunderminenz.org/paparoa

We now have only 4 days to make this march really, really big so please forward this to your circle of contacts. Let's make this one count.

And, if you can't get there on the day you can be there in spirit by creating your placard online here:

Hope to see you there!

Ve lo traduco:

La scorsa settimana le ambasciatrici di Sign On Lucy Lawless e Robyn Malcolm hanno visitato la Costa Occidentale andando al Parco Nazionale di Paparoa (in NZ)--uno dei 4 posti proposti da trasformare in una miniera.

Lucy ha detto: "Il Ministro dell'Energia Gerry Brownlee ha detto che il carbone è "sexy" così Robyn e io abbiamo messo insieme questo piccolo video come tributo della sua "Sexyness"(Sensualità LOL) Dategli un'occhiata(se avete oltre i 18 anni)"

Dovete guardarlo per crederci:


Sono rimasti solo 4 giorni alla marcia(del primo maggio), veramente pochini perciò per favore mandate questo a tutti i vostri contatti. Facciamo sentire la nostra voce.

E se non potete essere li quel giorno, potete partecipare li in spirito mandando un vostro cartello online qui:
http://bit.ly/virtualplacard

Spero di vedervi li
Il Team di Sign On.

Il video è spassosissimo, ed è una presa in giro da parte di Lucy e Robyn a quello che il Ministro dell'Energia ha detto.
Prendetelo come uno scherzo, perchè lo è, ma ha anche un messaggio riguardante la Campagna Antiminiere, come vedrete dalle scritte durante il video.

Questo è l'articolo, dice praticamente quello che ho spiegato in tutto il topic:

By Samantha Hayes

Actors Lucy Lawless and Robyn Malcolm have launched Greenpeace's campaign against mining in national parks.

The Government plans to open up 3,000ha of previously protected land, for mining.

Ms Lawless and Ms Malcolm condemn coal mining as a Dark Ages practice that will threaten the tourist industry.
Ms Lawless launched the campaign at the Punakaiki Pancake Rocks, 50km southwest of the proposed mining sites. She asked tourists what they thought of coal mining in the Paparoa National Park – one said it would "ruin" New Zealand's legacy.

But it was Outrageous Fortune star Robyn Malcolm who fronted up to Greymouth's pro-mining mayor Tony Kokshoorn and asked why the West Coast needs more coal mines.

"New Zealand's production of coal is a drop in the bucket compared to other nations," argued Mr Kokshoorn. "Look at China and Australia, at what they produce."

Ms Malcolm countered that New Zealand is a small country that relies so much on tourism.

Mr Kokshoorn however says Greenpeace is "stirring", and the Resource Management Act will take care of the environment.

"I think they're really scaremongering the public into thinking that we're going to get our chainsaws back out, get our diggers back out and go into the bush and ruin it," he says, "but look, West Coasters do not want that, we love our rainforests, we love our environment, it's pristine."

Ms Malcolm says New Zealand needs to look to clean energy.

"When you burn coal you create emissions, which are devastating because of climate change."

Greenpeace is hoping its ambassadors will generate public support for its anti-mining campaign, which culminates in a march in Auckland on May 1.

What are you doing this Saturday at 11.00?

Sul sito di Ecostore c'è un blog sulla marcia del Primo Maggio contro le Miniere in Nuova Zelanda, riporta anche il messaggio di Lucy da Greenpeace e il nuovo video di Lucy e Robyn Malcolm al parco di Paparoa di cui potete trovare il link anche nel paragrafo sotto, ed è su questo sito nella sezione video:
http://lucylawlessitalianfansite.webs.com/signon.htm#565665476
http://lucylawlessitalianfansite.webs.com/articoli.htm#565657888

ecostore’s international success, even in Australia has been partially because of the world’s perception of NZ’s clean, green, eco friendly brand. We are in danger of losing our credibility.

Many of you will be aware of the Mining March that is taking place this Saturday in Auckland.As Kiwis who care passionately about our environment, the ecostore team will be there.

If you disagree with Government plans to mine New Zealand’s most precious places please do come along. Join thousands of Kiwis in a big march up Queen Street on May 1st, to protest against proposals to sacrifice conservation land. This march is organised by a number of groups who care for our environment.

My mate Lucy Lawless has been actively campaigning for “Don’t Undermine NZ” and sent me this. Please take look at her clip- it’s important ( and funny)

________________________________________________________

Dear Malcolm,

Last week, Robyn Malcolm and I paid a visit to beautiful Paparoa National Park on the West Coast, one of the conservation areas the
Government wants to mine – for coal.

Energy Minister Gerry Brownlee reckons coal is “sexy”, so Robyn and I have put together this little video as a tribute to its sexiness.
Check it out (if you’re over 18!!).



Sexy coal with Lucy Lawless and Robyn Malcolm

Digging it up to burn more coal and pollute our children’s atmosphere is not ETHICAL, not SMART and not FORWARD THINKING. In short it is un-Kiwi. Don’t do it!

We need clean, sustainable energy not coal mining and climate change. Tourists I spoke to at Paparoa were in disbelief that our
Government is even considering this.

Mining our conservation land means stealing from our kids. We are responsible for turning this around.

So let’s make sure John Key gets the message loud and clear on May 1.
We need a big turnout on Queen St at 11am – so see you there!

Lucy Lawless

PS if you can’t make it along (because, say, you live in the South Island) please forward this message to as many Aucklanders as you possibly can.

Lucy Lawless and Robyn Malcolm in the Paparoa National Park

Lucy e Robyn Malcolm sono al parco Nazionale di Paparoa in NZ, e chiedono alla gente cosa ne pensano del fatto che il governo vuole trasformarlo in una miniera. Inoltre ci mostrano la bellezza naturale di quel parco spiegandoci quanto sia assurdo distruggerlo.

Just two days now until the massive anti-mining march in Auckland! Right around the North Island, placards are being painted and buses organised to transport people to the City of Sails to have their say. Just incase what's at stake has slipped your mind, check out this video of Sign On ambassdors Lucy Lawless and Robyn Malcolm visiting the stunning Paparoa National Park (just one of the spots on National's chopping board):



In the last week, it's become apparent that the Government's mining plans stretch far beyond what they'd originally tabled in public, with Forest and Bird revealing intentions to mine more National Parks than previously thought. So it's not bad; it's really bad.

Meanwhile the Commissioner for the Environment has come out against the schedule 4 proposals, a stance which got right up Gerry Brownlee's nose.

Speaking of the Brownster, rumour has it he can't stop watching the steamy Youtube video in which he features with aforementioned ambassadors Lucy and Robyn.

Cheerio til Saturday!! If you're can't make it but have a good placard idea, see here.

Messaggio da Robyn Malcolm

Come sapete Robyn Malcolm(attrice Neo Zelandese) sta partecipando alla campagna Don't Undermine NZ insieme a Lucy.
Robyn ha mandato un messaggio ai membri di Greenpeace lanciando un appello.
Alcuni anni fa il Governo ha fatto si che il Parco Nazionale di Paparoa(dove lei e Lucy sono andate) diventasse un'area protetta per gli anni a venire e luogo per i turisti.
Di fatto quel parco è il simbolo della bellezza Neo Zelandese.
Ora il Governo ha deciso di trasformarlo in Miniera perchè sono stati scoperti dei giacimenti di Carbon Fossile.
Questo è inaccettabile per gli abitanti della NZ, ne per i turisti che la visitano.
Non solo, il carbone emette CO2, dannoso per la salute, e anche questo è inaccettabile.
Tutto quello che la NZ ha fatto finora per mantenere l'immagine di terra pulita e naturale sta per essere distrutto.
Per questo è importante preservare quel parco così come altri 3 posti che sono in lista per diventare miniere.
Robyn fa un appello chiedendo a tutti di partecipare a questa iniziativa:

Biggest protest march in living memory

La più grande marcia di Protesta mai fatta finora in NZ, con più di 50,000 persone partecipanti:

Biggest protest march in living memory
Submitted by Kathy Cumming on Sat, 01/05/2010 - 14:01

We expected 20,000. We HOPED for 30,000. We got nearly double that. In the biggest protest march in living memory, 50,000 turned out on Queen Street today to march against the Government's mining plans.

The photos say it all (see below). Greenpeace ambassador Robyn Malcolm also puts it pretty good when she says: "For nearly 50,000 Kiwis to turn out and be prepared to speak with one voice, must tell the Government something. And that something is this: we, the people of NZ get it; we get the argument, we see what you’re up to and we won’t have it. Our land will always be more important to our identity than some extra dollars in the pockets of mining companies."

Take heed, John Key and your Government. Had you been there today on Queen Street, you would have felt an energy untapped since the heady days of anti-nuclear marches. New Zealanders have spoken; you must listen. We will not stand by while you squander our land, reputation and climate.

Thousands make mining message clear

Un articolo che parla della marcia

An estimated 40,000 marchers joined one of the biggest protests in Auckland for decades today, to give the government a firm message to stay away from mining on conservation land.

Marchers left the bottom of Queen St about 11am and by the time the first of them arrived at Myers Park, just below Karangahape Rd, they were still leaving the bottom of Queen St.

The protest blocked most of Queen St for at least an hour, but it shows how passionate New Zealanders are about protecting conservation land from mining, says Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei.

The government has announced plans to open 7,058 hectares of protected conservation land and marine reserves for mining, while adding protected status to a further 12,400ha. It says the value of resources underground could be $140 billion.

However, Turei says the numbers being "bandied around" are estimates and based on superficial core samples.

She says the figures have not been substantiated, and people are saying to the government there are some places which "were out of bounds for mineral exploitation".

"This is the government trying to satisfy the interests of the mining industry over the interests of the New Zealand public.

"They want to sell off these assets to private interests, knowing they will get less than 1% of the royalties back, spinning industry numbers about the jobs that might be created."

Energy Minister Gerry Brownlee says the level of support today is not surprising, saying it always expected strong public opposition to its mining proposal.

"We alway knew this is a contentious issue, but it's no less contentious than what is New Zealand going to do if we don't grow our economy at a much faster rate than we have done," he says.

"We're not saying that this is the silver bullet. We asked New Zealanders what they thought and they're telling us."

And the message from Kiwis is loud and clear.

"More than 50% of the country does not want schedule four land mined," says Turei.

She says the government is backing off its plans because of the widespread public opposition to mining on schedule four land, and the public wish for protection of conservation land.

She also says the government has failed to consult Maori about the impact on them of mining the lands.

Protesters are concerned about harm to the economy, the country's "clean green" brand and the tourism industry.

"These plans are an attack on our values, that we believe our country is worth protecting, that the environment provides us with essential ecosystems services that we cannot get from elsewhere - health and soil, clean water, bio-diversity.

"Those things are not negotiable," she says.

Huge protest says no to mining on conservation land

An estimated 50,000 marchers joined one of the biggest protests in Auckland for decades today, to give the Government a firm message to stay away from mining on conservation land.

Police, however, said the number of protesters was closer to 20,000, although no arrests were made.

Marchers left the bottom of Queen St about 11am and by the time the first of them arrived at Myers Park, just below Karangahape Rd, they were still leaving the bottom of Queen St.

At one point, they stretched almost from end to end of the road.

Greenpeace executive director Bunny McDiarmid said it was one of the biggest turnouts of New Zealanders she had ever seen.

"More than 50 per cent of the country does not want schedule four land mined," she said.

"People have made it very clear today that they are not happy with the direction this Government is taking us.

"The mining proposals are like something from another age. Mining pristine conservation lands is exactly the backwards thinking that must change if New Zealand's to have any chance of prosperity in the future."

Greenpeace ambassador and marcher Robyn Malcolm said: "Our land will always be more important to our identity than some extra dollars in the pockets of mining companies."

The protest blocked most of Queen St for at least an hour, but it showed how passionate New Zealanders were about protecting conservation land from mining, said Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei.

The Government has announced plans to open 7058 hectares of protected conservation land and marine reserves for mining, while adding protected status to a further 12,400ha. It said the value of resources underground could be $140 billion.

However, Ms Turei said the numbers being "bandied around" were estimates and based on superficial core samples.

She said the figures had not been substantiated, and people were saying to the Government there were some places which "were out of bounds for mineral exploitation".

"This is the Government trying to satisfy the interests of the mining industry over the interests of the New Zealand public. They want to sell off these assets to private interests, knowing they will get less than 1 per cent of the royalties back, spinning industry numbers about the jobs that might be created."

The level of support was not surprising, she said.

Richard Davies from Federated Mountain Clubs said the march showed Kiwis were proud of New Zealand's outdoor image.

"The message to the Government is clear - keep your greedy hands off our precious landscapes."

And Forest and Bird's Nicola Vallance said national parks were an "essential element" of the country's identity.

"The Government is eroding public trust but it's obvious from today's turnout that people will push back hard to make their voices heard on this issue."

Energy Minister Gerry Brownlee said mining was a controversial issue and was always bound to draw strong public opposition.

"We know that the numbers are roughly 50-50 on this ... and we'll continue to handle it in a sensitive manner," he told 3 News.

Ms Turei said the Government was backing off its plans because of the widespread public opposition to mining on schedule four land, and the public wish for protection of conservation land.

The consultation period for the proposal was extended by three weeks after 14,000 submissions were received.

She also said the Government had failed to consult Maori about the impact on them of mining the lands.

Protesters were concerned about harm to the economy, the country's "clean green" brand and the tourism industry.

These plans are an attack on our values, that we believe our country is worth protecting, that the environment provides us with essential ecosystems services that we cannot get from elsewhere -- health and soil, clean water, bio-diversity.

"Those things are not negotiable," she said.

"These plans are an attack on our values, that we believe our country is worth protecting, that the environment provides us with essential ecosystems services that we cannot get from elsewhere - health and soil, clean water, bio-diversity.

"Those things are not negotiable," she said.
