Oil Exploration Protest, Napier 2013

About 100 people marched to the HB Regional Council offices to protest a lack of consultation over oil and gas exploration in Hawke's Bay, and managed to hand a letter over to the Minister of Energy and Resources Simon Bridges, asking for a moratorium on oil and gas exploration. The letter also asked that the oil and gas industry earn its "social licence to operate" by being more open and ethical in the way it operated. Photos Glenn Taylor
