Today, October 18th climate solidarity protest Wellington

Postby Lentil » Fri Oct 03, 2014 9:04 pm

In October, a historic act of resistance will send the clear message from the Pacific Islands to the fossil fuel industry: We are not drowning. We are fighting.

Join us on October 18th to show them that as New Zealanders we stand in solidarity with them.

350 Aotearoa and Oil Free Wellington invite you to come along to Wellington waterfront (Odlin’s Plaza, in front of Mac’s Brewery) to send our message across the seas that we stand with our Pacific Neighbours, and that we commit to showing our solidarity by standing against the fossil fuel industry here in Aotearoa.

People from across the Pacific Islands are journeying to Australia right now, where, in late October, they will use a flotilla of traditional canoes to lay down a peaceful but direct challenge to the fossil fuel industry at the world’s largest coal port - Newcastle.

The Pacific Warriors have asked that people from around the world stand with them in solidarity as they stand to say “we will not let the fossil fuel industry continue the destruction of our homes”.

We will be forming a giant message of solidarity for the Pacific Warriors. There will also be entertainment, speakers, and a chance to hear about upcoming ways to get involved in local resistance against the fossil fuel industry.

As our Pacific neighbours rise to fight for their homes, let’s stand with them and show our support.

More details of event including speakers and entertainment TBC

Solidarity Demo at Odlin's Plaza, in front of Mac's Brewery, Wellington Waterfront, Saturday, 18th October, 12noon-1pm



Pacific Climate Warriors are going to come face to face with the biggest threat to their homes: the fossil fuel industry.

For 20 years they have asked world leaders to take action to stop polluting the atmosphere, but with greenhouse gas emissions continuing to rise, the Pacific Islanders can not wait for action so no the warriors of the Pacific are peacefully standing up directly to the fossil fuel industry.

Using hand-built traditional canoes, the Pacific Climate Warriors will paddle out into the harbour of the world’s largest coal port – Newcastle – to stop coal exports for a day and send their message to the fossil fuel industry and the world: “We are not drowning. We are fighting.”

The Pacific Warriors cannot block a whole coal port alone, we need you to stand with us!

Using 5 traditional canoes, 30 Pacific Climate Warriors are going to paddle into the oncoming path of coal ships in an effort to shut down the world’s biggest coal port for a day.

Canoes represent Tokelau, Solomon Islands, the Fiji Islands, Vanuatu and Tonga
