2 Precious 2 Mine - Nelson March

Protesting march at yesterday in central Nelson against our government (National Party) is trying to allow a mining at our national park. (Hands off National! It's 2 precious 2 mine!)

700 strong Nelsonians gathered and marched to show our passion to protect precious resource of our nature.  Those placards says it all!

  1. Oh, I hope that the marchers and protestors are successful; mining seems to mar the land...and in a park?!

  2. Good on you guys!
    I'm not happy about that either.
    Once it is allowed in one park others will follow - Like the Great Barrier, Coromandel etc - and will be no stopping.
    Hope National listens

  3. Mining in a National Park. That sounds like a very bad idea. I hope you will be able to stop it.

  4. Our currently prime minister is also the tourist minister, and an ex-futures trader or some such. And tourism, needless to say, is HUGE earner for NZ. I hate short-sightedness and greed. These last few months, I wake up to the news wondering if New Zealand is still a democracy.
