Why we are marching:

The government’s attack on environmental protection with the Fast-Track bill is a war on nature, which undermines democracy and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

The Fast-track Approvals Bill is at the heart of this Government's systematic war on nature, which includes an attack on environmental protections critical to preserving fresh water, forests, oceans, and wildlife. It will put Aotearoa on a fast track to environmental destruction.

This anti-democratic Bill concentrates power in the hands of three Ministers and allows them to run roughshod over the few environmental protections we have in place for our threatened wildlife and landscapes - while ignoring the concerns of local communities and tangata whenua. It is wide open to corruption and lacks any semblance of environmental protection while removing existing protections.

We cannot stand by and allow the forests and oceans of Aotearoa to be turned into open-cast mines, their rivers and lakes turned into sewers, or precious wildlife to be condemned to extinction.
