Climate change has been a hot topic for a number of years around the world. In New Zealand this week, Māori in the North Island took provocative action to try and stop what they believe is damaging to the environment and their iwi’s future.
Raihania Tipoki and a team from Greenpeace had a simple message for the Amazon Warrior – get out!
The Amazon Warrior is the biggest siesmic blasting vessel in the world.
Tipoki is speaking on behalf of 80 hapū in Ikaroa Rawhiti.
RNZ also covered the event which included a 60,000 strong petition delivered to the ship via an open letter read over the radio.
