Denniston protesters put 'freeze on coal'

About 50 people protesting against mining in the Denniston Plateau on the West Coast froze for a minute in a central Wellington park this afternoon.

The protesters, with signs reading "NZ or Aus, don't sell off the Denniston'' and "Environmental abuse is a National thing'', gathered at Midlands Park at midday.

They then froze for a minute in a protest to "put a freeze on coal''.

Australian mining company Bathurst Resources has resource consent to develop the Denniston coalmine, but late last month it announced it had revised its proposal.
