Water Rally – We Do Not Consent! Clean Up Our Water!

13 May at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us at a public rally at ECan on Thursday 13 May 12 noon – 1pm to show our concern for the state of Canterbury water.
ECan has just rolled over a resource consent for the massive and highly polluting Mayfield/Hinds/Valetta irrigation scheme. Two more big irrigation scheme rollovers are in the consent pipeline.
These schemes were first consented in 2010, against huge public opposition and after ECan’s elected council had been sacked.
As predicted, these schemes and the intensive dairy stocking they support have had a destructive impact over the past decade on the health of our water, land, biodiversity and human communities.
Yet these consents are being rolled for another 10 years – because the current RMA law allows it.
Again the public are not being consulted or even formally notified!
Aotearoa Water Action, Save Our Water, Extinction Rebellion Otautahi and other groups and individuals are gathering at ECan at 12 noon on Thursday 13 May to express our concern and demand action.
ALL WELCOME!
ECan’s council will also be holding its monthly meeting from 10.30am that day. The meeting is open to the public.
