Update: Rally for Climate Justice!

Rally for climate justice: Blockade the Oil Summit
The annual Oil Summit is happening in Wellington March 26-28. Help stop it!
Rally for Climate Justice
On March 27 Oil Free Wellington, with the support of many groups, is holding a rally for climate justice and a blockade of the oil summit in Wellington. Every year representatives from oil companies come together to schmooze and find ways to make money from oil and gas – even as the world struggles to adapt to the lethal effects of climate change caused by pollution from these industries.
It’s never been more important to stand against oil and gas and stand up for a fair and sustainable world.
The companies are keeping the venue secret, we can tell you that it is in central Wellington and  we will find out more soon. Please register at https://www.rallyforclimatejustice.nz/ and we will let you know more as soon as we can.
Help the sun flower
On March 26, 12:15pm at Frank Kitts park, 350.org and other groups will be sending a message to the government and the oil companies to end fossil fuel exploration.
More details will come soon so, once again, please register at https://www.rallyforclimatejustice.nz/ and we will let you know more as soon as we can.

Many people are coming from outside of Wellington. We have arranged accommodation for friends traveling from around Aotearoa for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday night. If you will need accommodation please let us know by registering.
