A warm welcome to all those new to our updates list! And many thanks to those of you who were able to come to the Community Response Team meeting on 1st March. It was really great to meet you all and hear all your ideas and questions. We look forward to working with you all over the year to make the opposition to the oil industry and deep sea oil loud and clear – and to ensure a climate justice narrative helps join the dots between climate change and an exploitative system.
Come along to our NVDA (Non-Violent Direct Action) workshop planned for 9-2.30pm Sunday 3rd April at the Aro Valley Hall. We are really excited about it and will send out more detailed information soon! Keep an eye on our facebook page for updates too. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep an eye out for dates in May for a tour to explore the oil industry in Taranaki and a workshop day towards the end of May to explore creative responses as we continue to oppose the expansion of the fossil fuel industry.
WOMAD, sponsored by Shell and Todd Energy, is happening at the end of this week from the 18th-20th March in New Plymouth. Our friends from Climate Justice Taranaki will be leafleting and giving out stickers. They’d love to see you – and get help to spread the word about what is happening in Taranaki. If you are heading to WOMAD and able to help out, please email them on <climatejusticetaranaki@
And check out this page here for more articles about boycotting WOMAD and oil sponsorship of the arts.
Look forward to staying in touch!
