The Greens have, just today, launched The Kiwi Bid. The Government is accepting bids from oil companies from the 24th of May for oil exploration. So the Greens are asking New Zealanders to sign up for a competing bid.


Even the industry admits there is no guarantee of safety with deep sea drilling, so we shouldn’t be doing it. The Government is putting the economic interests of the oil companies over the environmental values of the people of New Zealand. The Government’s argument of an economic boon are rubbish. There is little evidence that there would be many jobs from these deep sea rigs and they put at risk the local economies if there is a spill” Metiria Turei
