The annual Oil Summit is happening in Wellington March 26-28 at the TSB Arena, Wellington. Help stop it!
Rally for Climate Justice
On Tuesday, March 27, 7am, Oil Free Wellington, with the support of many groups will be marching from Frank Kitts Park to the TSB Arena, Wellington, for a rally for climate justice and a blockade of the oil summit. Every year representatives from oil companies come together to schmooze and find ways to make money from oil and gas – even as the world struggles to adapt to the lethal effects of climate change caused by pollution from these industries.
Things will be running until roughly 4pm so come along when you can.
It’s never been more important to stand against oil and gas and stand up for a fair and sustainable world.
