Things are heating up. People across New Zealand and around the world are taking a stand against the climate crisis. Right now, we’re rising up to confront the last big international oil company in New Zealand’s waters: OMV.
Join us for a peaceful protest at OMV’s offices, 2nd - 4th December 2019. The Uprising is happening NOW, but we still need you to come along! Follow the live feed for updates.
WHO IS OMV?
OMV is a big oil company from Austria, and it’s the last oil giant hanging around New Zealand like a bad smell. While the Government has banned all new offshore oil and gas exploration permits, OMV is determined to drill for oil in the deep water off Aotearoa’s coasts using permits it received before the ban.
Fossil fuel companies like OMV are driving the climate crisis. It’s all feeling too real: the Amazon rainforest on fire, storms hammering our coastlines and droughts threatening our ability to grow food.
But as the seas rise, so do the people.
WHAT’S PLANNED FOR THIS SUMMER?
Introvert or extrovert, rule-breaker or cake-baker, we need all hands on deck to take on our last big oil opponent: OMV.
We’re disrupting OMV’s business as usual with a cheeky, peaceful protest at the OMV office in New Plymouth, starting on the 2nd December with activities continuing until the 4th.
Whether you can make it for one day or three, we’d love to see you there. There are roles for everyone, from the frontline to making sure people are comfy and fed. We’ll provide accommodation, food and a full briefing so you feel prepared and confident. It’ll be a festival atmosphere as we celebrate the end of oil in Aotearoa New Zealand.
If you can’t make it to Taranaki, there are local activities showing the scale of resistance to OMV all across the country!
