We are all volunteers working for this group. New volunteers are always welcome. If you’d like to help out in some ways, contact us here. Alternatively, if you would like to help us cover some of our running costs so we can organise more events for example, we’d be grateful. Our bank account details are as follows:
Climate Justice Taranaki Incorporated
Right now, we are raising funds for our Environment Court Case to appeal the Taranaki Regional Council’s decisions on oil and gas activities within the proposed Regional Coastal Plan. This Give-A-Little page explains our case in detail, including the experts who are supporting us. If you’d like to chip in financially for this case, we’d be delighted.
In addition, we are continuing to help raise funds for the North Taranaki Awa Protection Society to stop Remediation NZ’s polluting operation near Uruti. With the funds raised earlier, the society was able to hire an air quality expert and lawyer to put together evidence and argue against consents renewal by the Taranaki Regional Council, and won. BUT the company is appealing the decision, so the Awa Society is now preparing to go to the Environment Court. Hearings are expected to take place in July 2022. Please support:

John McLean, Chairman of NTAPS thank you for your help.
A bit more background, Remediation NZ has for years been taking petroleum drilling wastes, green wastes and animal wastes, etc. for its compost making operation. The neighbouring families have been put through intolerable stench, many are sick. The Haehanga Stream and the Mimitangiatua River are severely degraded.
That petition is now closed but the EPA submission hearings are happening soon about OMV’s next proposal to drill in Taranaki again. See our June/July 2014 articles on this.
Just want to thank you for the meeting at Opunake yesterday.
Your presentations were very informative, and alarming!
I am sure that the solid work that you are doing will get support, as the messages seep thro the community.
Public and farmer inertia are your foes, along with the persuasive techniques of the oil companies, and the look the other way stance of the territorial authorities.
Suggest Forest and Bird, environment groups, local market stalls,, farmers wives, grandmothers,play centres to get messages out there.
Whanganui Green Party supports your efforts,
Thank you for your positive comments and support. We will take your suggestion forward.
Would love to help by doing leaflet dropping. This is such a great thing going on here, but it’s hard to share around other media sites ..where we can inform other public.
I want to be able to share the petition is that possible?
