Te Whanau a Apanui on deep-sea drilling

by Matthew Bartlett @ 8:14 am

Tribal leader Rikirangi Gage said

Te Whanau a Apanui oppose Petrobras’ deep sea oil prospecting and drilling for good reasons. Our ancestors didn’t instruct us to be selfish in the way that the Government is thinking, risking so much and thinking of so few. A longer term perspective shows that bringing up oil from under the deep sea floor to be burnt will cause harm to ourselves, our resources and the world around us.
