A protest against Anadarko's drilling off the coast of Otago
attracted a crowd of about 300 to St Clair beach in Dunedin

Mr Boldor, Welcome aboard as long as you know the difference
between a molasses barrel and the real bombs. Aw, jump aboard
anyway, won't hurt much if we get it wrong. Perhaps we will
open that channel right through to the harbour as the
Americans wanted in the 40's. Next big quake here, most of
South D will be liquifacted anyway so no great loss.
I am assuming that many of these protesters arrived at St.
Clair in petrol powered cars that consume some of the
products to be produced by these wells. If they are that
passionate, I expect to see them ride everywhere by bicycle.
Captain Speedfreak requesting permission to volunteer as
mollasses bomb aimer in the B29 should this become nessesary
in the future.
macfod just be like me. I don't put any faith in any protest
group unless they can generate at least the same number of
people who attend the Christmas Parade.
None of the anti groups in town have managed to do that so
far and I don't see it ever happening.
But sadly the B-29's in the shop this week getting larger
fuel tanks fitted to supply the 4 huge superchargers that
have recently been installed.
I could have loaned it for the day and that would have made a
statement towing the banner.
Permission to buzz the beach, sir? We could have come in from
the sea at 400mph at 100 feet and plastered the lot of them
Sadly for the protesters, a couple of hundred people ain't
much of a statement.
Unlike some, it's great to see that hundreds of people have
balls enough to protest on what they believe is right. Fossil
fuels are not the future, plain and simple. Maybe you are
both of those if you can not comprehend that.
Ok. 300 people including kids protest ...yawn...hardly a huge
show. Loved the fly past with the pro -gas drill banner.
Plenty of fuel guzzlin' cars pulling up as normal.
