Oil drilling protest

01:53, Feb 14 2014

A Banners on the Beach protest against deep sea oil drilling will be in Rarangi tomorrow.

The demonstration starts at noon at the Rarangi community centre on Rarangi Beach Rd.

Rarangi residents are hoping that fellow Marlburians will support the event.

The demonstration will see protesters on beaches along the east coast of the South Island voicing their opposition to exploratory oil drilling by Texan company Anadarko.

Rarangi resident Gabriella Waizeneggar said she had been mobilising the community for the past three weeks, urging people to learn more about the issue and take a stand.

She was confident most Rarangi residents would turn out.


Former fisheries officer Vicki Baker has been invited to speak at the protest.
