Aotearoa New Zealand:
Right now, Uri o Ngāti Pāoa are occupying the beach at Pūtiki Bay (Kennedy Point) on Waiheke Island to protect Pūtiki from the proposed ‘Kennedy Point Marina’.
Support Pacific Islands Students Fighting Climate Change in campaigning for an Advisory Opinion from the International Court of Justice, on the issue of climate change and human rights. Getting an ‘AO’ could be a legal catalyst for action while clarifying international law.
Aotearoa’s biggest emitter of greenhouse gas is our dairy industry. We back Greenpeace’s call to the New Zealand government to:
- Introduce a $1 billion fund to help farmers transition to regenerative agriculture practices.
- Phase out feeding Aotearoa’s cows on imported feed. Using palm such as palm kernel expeller (PKE) supports the palm oil industry – displacing indigenous peoples and communities, causing deforestation and destruction in some of the world’s crucial places for absorbing carbon.
- Phase-out the use of synthetic nitrogen fertiliser. Synthetic fertiliser causes more emissions than our whole domestic aviation industry…and that’s just its direct emissions. It’s also used in intensive dairying which produces huge methane and nitrous oxide emissions.
-Oxfam’s related petition is here; Forest and Bird’s petition to stop development of any new coal mines in Aotearoa; KASM’s petition to ban seabed mining; MakeIt16 aims to lower the voting age from 18 to 16 in New Zealand; 350 Aotearoa’s petition to ban new fossil fuel burners in the state sector; 350 Aotearoa is calling for artwork and writing from young people to send strong messages to political leaders to more and faster action on climate change; make taking the bus free and easy!
