Fonterra wants to build a new coal mine at Mangatawhiri, near Auckland, and Auckland Coal Action is working with local residents to oppose it.
Submissions on the proposed mine are now open and close on Thursday 28 March. Please make a submission using this handy submission guide: http://aucklandcoalaction.org/2013/02/28/submissions-on-proposed-new-coal-mine-at-mangatangimangatawhiri/
Coal is Fonterra’s dirty little secret. You can find out more about that here: https://coalactionnetworkaotearoa.wordpress.com/2013/03/04/fonterras-dirty-secret/
Auckland Coal Action have also created an excellent leaflet about Fonterra’s plans, which is also available for you to download.
