DONT Mine DOC Land in New Zealand

89 Signatures Goal: 100

The Government is in the process of changing the law to be able to mine New Zealand’s most beautiful, and currently protected land. How can we stand by while OUR land is carved up and destroyed. These locations are protected by the Conservation Department for a reason. They are some of the most beautiful locations that New Zealand has to offer.

Not only will this have a gianormous effect on our “clean green” image for tourism, but it is the New Zealand people that have to live on this land. The areas affected are Coromandel and the Mt Aspiring, Kahurangi, Fiordland and Paparoa national parks. 

In his speech, Mr Key said a conservation fund would be established through royalties from mining revenue, but money cannot fix the environmental damage that this would cause. 

It is the everyday New Zealander that will be the looser. It is our land that will be destroyed. We only have one New Zealand, we only have one Earth. There is only so much damage that our land can take before we will pay the price for our destruction.
