Anti-mining protesters fill Queen St

By Kate Lynch

Around 50,000 people have taken to the streets of Auckland, ordering the Government to stay away from mining conservation land.

It is believed to be one of the biggest protests in Auckland for decades.

Shoulder to shoulder, 50,000 people marched through central Auckland. At one stage they stretched almost the entire length of Queen St.

The protest was led by Greenpeace ambassadors Lucy Lawless and Robyn Malcolm.

"It's great that so many people have turned up," says Malcolm. "It's brilliant. It's what we expected, too. There's been a strong belief over the past few weeks that there are an enormous number of New Zealanders extremely opposed to this."

They are opposed to Energy Minister Gerry Brownlee's proposal to open approximately 7,000 hectares of protected conservation land for mining, to grow the country's income.

Greenpeace says Mr Brownlee is out of step with New Zealanders' values.

"We're at a crossroads," says spokesperson Bunny McDiarmid. "We can decide how we can go forward with our economic development - do we want to do it at the cost of our land, our brand and national reputation, and we're saying no, we don't."

Great Barrier Island, Papaora National Park and parts of the Coromandel are in the firing line.

Three busloads of people came up from Thames to join the protest.

"I want my kids to have a future with a green land," says Victoria Cullen. "We shouldn't be selling off our country for one percent at least.

"We need these parks, our kids need these parks and the world needs the parks. They're ours, not his."

Many of them carried placards aimed at Mr Brownlee and Prime Minister John Key.

One group were taped chanting, "John key is a Dick" repeatedly.

"He's destroying the values that have built this country," says Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei. "This country was built on protecting this land for future generations. He wants to steal that from future generations. That's wrong."

Public pressure has already seen the consultation period for the proposal extended by three weeks after 14,000 submissions were received.

Organisers were hoping to quadruple the number of submissions today.

"We know that the numbers are roughly 50-50 on this," says Mr Brownlee, "so you'd expect a big turnout and we'll continue to handle it in a sensitive manner."

New Zealanders have until the May 26 to make their view heard, one way or the other.

"Eco Warrior Lucy Lawless vents her anger over the bid"

Actor Lucy Lawless said the size and mood of the march brought back
memories of mass demonstrations of 25 years ago.

‘‘This reminds me of the late 80s, after the Rainbow Warrior bombing,
back when there was class consciousness.’’

She was particularly concerned about the effects of coalmining: ‘‘To
take carbon out of the ground and burn it, when we know about climate
change, is immoral.’’
http://www.lucylawless.info/2010/05/march-against-mining-protest-in-herald-on-sunday-02-may-2010.html

Questa è la citazione di un articolo che sto per postare giù.
Lucy ha detto che questa manifestazione le ha fatto ricordare quello che è successo 25 anni fa, negli anni 80, dopo che il Rainbow Warrior è stato bombardato dai terroristi. Allora ci fu una grande protesta come questa, e coscienza da parte di tutti le classi.
Ha detto di essere particolarmente preoccupata degli effetti causati dalle miniere di Carbone: "Prendere il carbone da sotto terra e bruciarlo, siamo a conoscenza dei cambiamenti climatici, è immorale"

Biggest protest in a generation

Questo è l'articolo nella sua interezza dal quale proviene la citazione di Lucy sopra:

Up to 40,000 protesters voiced their anger at Government plans to mine protected land in the biggest demonstration in New Zealand for the past 20 years.

Central Auckland was brought to a standstill as a coalition of politicians, celebrities, environmentalists and the public demanded National halt proposals to mine Department of Conservation areas.

The march, which began near the waterfront at 11am, stretched for 1.3km along Queen St with protesters coming from as far as Coromandel and Wellington.

Police were caught unprepared by the scale of the demonstration and rolling roadblocks along Queen St were cancelled, as the entire street became a no-vehicle zone for 90 minutes.

Addressing the crowd afterwards in Myers Park, Outrageous Fortune star Robyn Malcolm said: "This is our backyard and the Government is being swayed by wealthy mining companies."

Actor Lucy Lawless said the size and mood of the march brought back memories of mass demonstrations of 25 years ago.

"This reminds me of the late 80s, after the Rainbow Warrior bombing, back when there was class consciousness."

She was particularly concerned about the effects of coal-mining: "To take carbon out of the ground and burn it, when we know about climate change, is immoral."

Actress Madeline Sami was blunt in her criticism of the mining proposal: "It's bulls--t, eh? It's ridiculous."

Organisers estimated there were more than 40,000 protesters, but police said the figure was closer to 20,000.

Labour Leader Phil Goff, accompanied by eight caucus members, said the size of the protest indicated the strength of public feeling on the issue: "They don't want pristine areas desecrated by international mining companies," he said.

Keith Locke was one of five Green MPs present.

Locke, a veteran of many Auckland protests, said the turnout was comparable to those at the peak of the anti-genetic engineering movement a decade ago.

Meanwhile, Roxanne, a graphic designer who refused to give her last name, carried a placard featuring John Key with a Hitler-esque moustache and a single word in gothic script: "Mein!"

And mum Fiona Copland said it was her first protest march.

She attended because of the interest shown by her daughter Alex, 12, who said of conservation land: "What's the point of having it so protected if they can just unprotect it?"

Police credited march organisers for a well-behaved crowd. Only one arrest was made.

The mining proposal is a key plank in government policy to catch up with Australia economically.

Energy Minister Gerry Brownlee told TV3 news he was aware the mining proposal was unpopular.

"We know the numbers are roughly 50:50 on this, so we weren't surprised by the turnout," he said.

Marching on
* September 2001: 10,000 march against Genetic Engineering, resulting in a moratorium.
* March 2003: 5000 protest against the Iraq War.
* October 2003: 9000 march against end of GE Moratorium, ending it.
* March 2005: 10,000 fight civil unions which remain legal.
* November 2007: 2000 protest the Electoral Finance Act which is repealed after the election.
* May 2009: 7000 failed in a call for Maori seats on Supercity council.
* November 2009: 4000 call for repeal of anti-smacking legislation but to no avail.
* May 2010: Up to 40,000 march opposing mining on conservation land.

Quasi 50,000 persone hanno protestato contro le miniere costruite nelle zone protette in NZ, tra cui Lucy, Robyn Malcolm, e tantissime altre persone Neo Zelandesi.
Alcuni sono stati intervistati e hanno detto di essere davvero delusi da questo governo.
Quello che vogliono fare è immorale e va contro la cultura Neo Zelandese.

Over 40,000 turn out to anti-mining march

International — Over 40,000 people turned out today to a march against the Government’s mining plans.

“For 40,000 Kiwis to turn out and be prepared to speak with one voice, must tell the Government something,” said Greenpeace ambassador and anti-mining marcher Robyn Malcolm.

“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.”

“This is one of the biggest turnouts of New Zealanders I’ve ever seen,” said
Greenpeace Executive Director Bunny McDiarmid.

“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. Today’s march shows that the Government and mining industry are on the backfoot on this one.”

“It’s been incredible to be out here today with so many New Zealanders who believe that mining in our national parks is not okay,” said Forest and Bird’s Nicola Vallance. “Our protected places are part of how we see ourselves as Kiwis – they’re an essential element of our national 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.”

“This rally shows that people both reject the proposals to mine in these protected areas and that people no longer trust John Key and Gerry Brownlee’s “consultation” process,” said Cath Wallace, Co-chair of the Environment and Conservation Organisations of NZ.

Richard Davies from Federated Mountain Clubs said the march showed people care about our conservation estate, and are proud of New Zealand's outdoor image. “The message to the Government is clear - keep your greedy hands off our precious landscapes."

John Drummond of Coromandel Watchdog: “Hundreds of people came up from the Coromandel to participate in the march. Generations joined together - committed, seasoned campaigners but also waves of enthusiastic young people.”

Mining: Lucy Lawless vs Gerry Brownlee
Mon 04:54 PM

Lucy Lawless and Gerry Brownlee are going head-to-head on Campbell Live tonight on the issue of mining after 50,000 people marched down Queen Street, protesting the Government's plans to retrieve precious minerals from conservation land. It is a battle between Beauty and The Beast, but whose side are you on? Will New Zealand's economy benefit from the extra mining, or will this plan cause long term damage to our environment and tourism industry?

Trascrizione del dibattito tra Lucy e Gerry Brownlee al Campbell live

Transcript of quotes from tonight's Campbell Live debate: Lucy Lawless vs Gerry Brownlee

Lucy Lawless:

"I was amazed at how many people showed up [at the protest march] and the vehemence of their objection to this proposal. I was there because I love New Zealand, I'm a member of the public, they're asking for public submissions so I wanted to make my voice heard.

I spent last week down at Paparoa National Park in the West Coast and saw this magnificent land, that park is like the cream of the crop of New Zealand foresty. There's significant Kiwi populations down there, beautiful native beech forest, rimu, nikau you name it.

Schedule 4 was land that was set aside in trust for us, for all New Zealanders to enjoy, forever. It was land that was designated never to be touched and now it seems to be saying "Just tricking! Let's dig it up".

The people who drafted Schedule 4 in 1997, the previous National Government, they were the ones who said "This is a no-go zone." A no-go zone. They know it is the best of our flora and fauna and it has to be protected. Otherwise, we're going to be calling the San Diego zoo and saying "Can we have our kiwis back please?

Where is the wealth going to go? Who is going to tap this? The best numbers of return on profit that I've seen in the papers just lately is like 2%. 2%? 2% is going to come back into the New Zealand purse? Where does the other 98% go please? I'd love to know that and what price?

Our brand as clean, green New Zealand is so valuable - we sell our meat on that, our tourism, major industries - we all leverage that brand which the tax payer paid for by the way.

I talked to tourists down in the Paparoa National Park outside the visitors centre and they were from Wales and from Northern England and they said "Don't do it! You should see what it's done to our landscape, it's a complete disaster.

You cannot rehab the land, Mr Brownlee. You cannot rehab the land. You know that." They're not showing those cyanide ponds that are up and down the Kaimai ranges. Newmont doesn't clean up after itself, I worked for them.

One Kiwi in the bush is worth ten bushels of coal in the hand."

Gerry Brownlee:

"The discussion document is out there and I'm sure Lucy would agree that the comments made about the Paparoa are not right.

Paparoa National Park is a splendid piece of land, no question. We're talking about a piece that was added to the park in 2008, it's a piece of land that sits quite separated from the park by a good distance and the conservation department in 2008 advised not to put it into Schedule 4 so I think we have to be careful about what we're actually talking about.

People forget that the conservation department have been involved in actually deciding what pieces of land we would put into the discussion document.

When it comes to concern about the profits about whether they stay in New Zealand or not, if you take a company like Newmont it brought in revenues of about $191 million into the country last year; 91% of that stayed in New Zealand.

It might surprise you to know that the headline photograph on the Toursim New Zealand website is the blue lakes in Otago. Those lakes are there as a result of mining in the 1800s.

Probably not enough people have read the discussion document. We don't have endless funds to promote that. We're talking about one-quarter of 1% of New Zealand's land mass in this case - a very small case.

Any suggestion that this is going to wreak havoc is utter nonsense.

There's a lot of kiwis in the bush today as a result of the contribution of mining companies to the recovery programme and you can go across the flora and fauna in this country and find that.

I have a great love for the conservation estate in this country. I don't want to see it destroyed in any particular way but I do think it's a legitimate question to ask: what are we prepared to do to put more income on that side of the ledger because we're on the back foot.

Don't diss mining completely, we wouldn't be having this broadcast tonight - not only would we not having the broadcast facilities but we wouldn't have the receivers in our homes. You cannot get up in the morning and go through a whole day without benefitting from the products, services, or otherwise from mining."

Cos'è Schedule 4-Submission Guide: Mining in Schedule 4

La Schedule 4 è una legge virata dal Parlamento Neo Zelandese nel 1997 che dice che alcune aree naturali protette, riservate al turismo ecc, non devono essere usate per costruire miniere o danneggiate in alcun modo.
Il nuovo Governo di John Key, al quale ci lavora il Ministro dell'Energia e Risorse Neo Zelandese, Gerry Brownlee ha deciso di ignorare questa legge o rinnovarla per creare delle miniere in 4 Parchi Naturali protetti della Nuova Zelanda.
Ora si chiede alla popolazione Neo Zelandese di presentare la loro opinione a riguardo, e mandare delle lettere con i loro punti di vista.
Qui c'è una guida che spiega cos'è la Schedule 4, e come far sentire la propria voce sul soggetto delle miniere:

Introduction

New Zealand is blessed with magnificent landscapes, rich forests, and a unique biodiversity. We have a proud history of protecting these precious places and the species that rely on them for survival. Over many generations, New Zealanders have fought hard to protect our National Parks and other conservation areas.

And these efforts have paid off. It is these wild and natural places, protected from development, that underpin our valuable ‘clean green’ image and our tourism industry’s ‘100 % Pure’ brand. To put this at risk is folly in the extreme.

How to make a submission

View the discussion document on the Ministry of Economic Development website

In a hurry? Sign a pre-written submission here!
What is Schedule 4?

Schedule 4 of the Crown Minerals Act is a list of our most precious and high value conservation lands. They are inaccessible for mining or exploration, and include our National Parks, wilderness areas, ecological areas and marine reserves. Mining is a permitted activity on other conservation lands, but Schedule 4 lands­–just 13% of New Zealand’s total land mass–represent the most significant conservation lands that deserve protection from mining and exploration.
Discussion document

The National Government has released its Schedule 4 stocktake discussion document, which proposes:

* The removal of 7000 ha of land from Schedule 4 so that mining can be considered on a ‘case-by-case’ basis
* Further taxpayer-funded geological investigations into large areas of schedule 4 lands including National Parks
* Changes to ministerial decision-making to facilitate easier minerals industry access to Crown land
* Long overdue additions to Schedule 4
* The establishment of a conservation fund paid for by mining royalties

The Green Party firmly believes that Schedule 4 lands are worth more to New Zealanders intact; providing recreation opportunities, tourism income, and ecosystem services; and we are opposed to any removals from Schedule 4 and any further investigations to assess their mineral potential.
How to make a submission

You can have your say on the Government’s discussion document by sending in a submission.

Submissions can be as short or long as you like, but being clear and concise is most effective. If long, include a summary at the beginning, number the paragraphs, and attach any supporting evidence as appendices.

Your submission must be received by the Ministry of Economic Development by 5pm Wednesday 26 May.
Email or Online

The easiest way is to use our online submission form or use the MED's online submission form.

Alternatively, you may email your submission to schedule4@med.govt.nz.

Please send a copy to mining@greens.org.nz so we can build your ideas into our campaign and keep you informed of developments.

2. Give an indication of who you are (e.g. landowner, business owner, community group member, etc). If you represent a group, outline its purpose and how many members it has
3. Outline your key concerns about the proposals clearly and concisely.

Key points we recommend you cover

For more information, go to www.greens.org.nz/mining. Remember to put them in your own words and use examples from your experience. If these areas are special to you and your family, say so.
Section 4: Areas proposed for removal from Schedule 4

It is proposed that 7000 ha be removed from Schedule 4 immediately, so that mining can be considered on a ‘case-by-case’ basis.

These areas deserve the protection of Schedule 4. They all have high conservation, tourism, recreational and cultural values, and these values outweigh their potential mineral values. Schedule 4 protection should be permanent and never removed.

Recommendation: Oppose all removals from Schedule 4
Section 7: Specific areas proposed for removal from Schedule 4

Te Ahumata Plateau on Great Barrier Island

* Great Barrier Island is a near-pristine gem, highly valued by the small community who live there, and by Aucklanders and tourists as a holiday and recreation retreat. Mining would do irreparable harm to the residents’ quality of life, and the island’s reputation & tourism industry.
* Recommendation: Oppose removal from Schedule 4

Sections of conservation land on the Coromandel peninsula

* The Coromandel is a diverse region with high conservation values, containing significant tracts of intact forest and threatened species. The Coromandel also has huge value as a wild and natural region close to major population centres, providing scenic and recreation opportunities. Conservation lands in the Coromandel deserve to stay in Schedule 4 to protect the ecological, tourism and recreational values of this unique peninsula.
* Recommendation: Oppose removal from Schedule 4

Otahu & Parakawai Ecological Areas in the Coromandel

* As above. These areas are home to North Island brown kiwi, long-tailed bats, Hochstetter's frogs, longfin eels and banded kokopu.
* Recommendation: Oppose removal from Schedule 4

The Inangahua sector of Paparoa National Park on the South Island’s West Coast

* Paparoa National Park has outstanding ecological and landscape values. The Government has not ruled out open-cast mining in this area. Mining for coal is irresponsible as the climate change emissions will be significant.
* Recommendation: Oppose removal from Schedule 4

Section 5: Further investigation programme

$4 million is to be spent over the next 9 months on investigating the mineral potential of huge tracts of Schedule 4 land, including the remainder of Paparoa National Park & Rakiura National Park.

This tax-payer funded investigation amounts to a $4 million subsidy to the mining industry, as they are the beneficiaries of the information the Government seeks to uncover. This investigation can only lead to more proposals for mining on conservation land, including Schedule 4 areas. Conservation land is for protection, not exploitation.

Recommendation: Abandon further investigation programme
Section 6.1: Joint Ministerial approval

It is proposed that any decision about mineral-related access applications to Crown land would require the joint approval of the Energy and Resources Minister as well as the land-owning Minister (for example the Conservation Minister).

This proposal would hand decision-making power over activities on conservation land to a development-focussed Minister. This is inappropriate.

Recommendation: Reject joint Ministerial approval for access to Crown Land, leaving such decisions with the land-owning Minister.
Section 8: Areas proposed for addition to Schedule 4

12,500 ha are proposed for addition to Schedule 4, meaning they are protected from mining.

While this is a positive step, these additions would have occurred anyway, and are long overdue. They do not ‘offset’ the removals. Furthermore, these additions should be automatic each time new lands are gazetted into National Parks and the other land classification types listed in Schedule 4.

Recommendation: Support addition of new lands to Schedule 4, and amend the Crown Minerals Act to make such additions automatic.
Section 9: Establishment of a contestable conservation fund

The section calls for the establishment of a conservation fund (valued at $2-10 million annually) from a portion of future mining royalties.

Conservation management of public land should be funded from DOC’s core budget, which was cut by $54 million last year. We want to see that funding reinstated. In addition, the Government has not ruled out the possibility of mining companies receiving funding to carry out remediation on mined land, work they should have to do anyway.

Recommendation: Abandon contestable conservation fund, restore the Greens’ $4 million p/a Community Conservation fund (cut in 2009), and reinstate DOC’s 2009 budget cut of $54 million.

Un articolo italiano che parla della Marcia Antiminiere in NZ:
http://lucylawlessitalianfansite.webs.com/articoliitaliani.htm#567963395

L'articolo praticamente riassume tutto quello che è successo in NZ in questi giorni, la marcia, le proposte del Governo e la protesta delle associazioni ambientaliste come il WWF e Greenpeace.
L'unica cosa è che l'articolo ha fatto degli errori
1) Robyn Malcolm è un'attrice, e non un attore
2) Non è stato John Key a dire che il carbone è sexy, ma Gerry Brownlee, il Ministro dell'Energia e Risorse in NZ. Per il resto è ok.

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.

TAKE ACTION : Send a message direct to the NZ Government to oppose the 'Schedule 4' mining proposal

Combat Key needed in theatre NZ

Un articolo che parla del Governo Neo Zelandese, di John Key, Gerry Brownlee, la controversia delle Miniere in NZ, e menziona Lucy:
http://lucylawlessitalianfansite.webs.com/articoli.htm#568911823

Prime Minister John Key was in his element judging by yesterday's video shots of him donning combat helmet and body armour to visit the SAS troops in Afghanistan.

Political leaders always play up the potential danger to themselves of being seen in the combat zones. But in truth they know it works well back home.

Particularly when they are preparing to make the public case to justify a decision (it has probably already been made in Key's head) to commit a slimmed-down SAS contingent to stay on beyond the current commitment.

News reports indicate a bullish Key told his accompanying bevy of four hand-picked journalists that he was "not prepared to send people to a destination [that] I am not prepared to come to myself".

Frankly, that's great.

It's exactly the kind of response that the Prime Minister's own political troops - especially his Cabinet Ministers - should now require from him as his Government enters the tricky period where it must don some political armour itself and do combat with its opponents in the national interest.

Take the mining controversy.

Despite what it says publicly, the plans to beef up mining on the conservation estate are a major plank in the Government's economic development strategy.

It's one of a number of policies like the financial services hub, a beefed up capital markets regime, increased oil and gas exploration and major sectoral plans that should all knit together as a comprehensive strategy to underpin this country's growth.

The Beehive spin-meisters maintain the "growth strategy" agenda has been spearheaded by Key himself working in collaboration with Economic Development Minister Gerry Brownlee.

Trouble is when it comes time to make the public case - particularly when the road gets a bit tough - Brownlee is left to play "Rocky" in an environment where, judging by the commentary, the Government spinners are preparing the ground for an about-face.

If the Key Government does back down over the mining proposal - on the basis of a few adverse polls and a campaign headed by TV star Robyn Malcolm and the over-rated Lucy Lawless - it deserves to be sent packing.

As veteran journalist and former Herald deputy editor Bruce Morris comprehensively proved in a letter to yesterday's newspaper, media estimates of the numbers of anti-mining protesters that did in fact march up Queen St on Saturday were hopelessly overblown.
