Economic Exclusive Zone (EEZ) - Stop the drilling
The Government is currently asking for public submissions on the types of activities that should be permitted within New Zealand's coastal waters, and the regulations needed for those that are. These activities would include deep sea oil drilling and seabed mining.There is opposition to drilling all around Aotearoa. Last year's Rena oil spill has made it clear that the government is not capable of dealing with a spill.
Greenpeace has set up an easy to use submission form online so you can tell the government that no amount of legislation or regulation can keep us safe from the risk of a massive oil spill.
