March For Nature

Watch the Live Stream here

Today at 1 pm, we will March for Nature in a peaceful protest against this Government’s reckless attacks on environmental protection.

Either register here if you want updates and/or you're keen to get involved in promotion or help on the day - or just show up!

We'll march against mining on conservation land, against new oil and gas exploration, seabed mining and we'll march against the Luxon Government's War on Nature and against the one-stop shop for environmental destruction that is the fast-track approvals bill. We'll march because the fast-track bill undermines our democracy and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

We are a broad coalition of environmental and community groups led by Greenpeace, Forest & Bird, Communities Against the Fast Track, Coromandel Watchdog, Kiwis Against Seabed Mining, Coal Action Network Aotearoa, WWF New Zealand, Ours Not Mines - and we expect many more will join as we go.

Join us on the day, and register here for updates and ways that you can help make it a success in the leadup and on the day!

- Why we’re marching -

The government’s attack on environmental
protection with the Fast-Track bill is a war on
nature, which undermines democracy and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

The Fast-track Approvals Bill is at the heart of this Government's systematic war on nature, which includes an attack on environmental protections critical to preserving fresh water, forests, oceans, and wildlife. It will put Aotearoa on a fast track to environmental destruction.

This anti-democratic Bill concentrates power in the hands of three Ministers and allows them to run roughshod over the few environmental protections we have in place for our threatened wildlife and landscapes - while ignoring the concerns of local communities and tangata whenua.

It is wide open to corruption and lacks any semblance of environmental protection while removing existing protections.

We cannot stand by and allow the forests and oceans of Aotearoa to be turned into open-cast mines, their rivers and lakes turned into sewers, or precious wildlife to be condemned to extinction.
