Actresses come Greenpeace ambassadors Lucy Lawless and Robyn Malcolm visited Paparoa National Park on the West Coast of the South Island yesterday to protest against the Government's proposal to mine 3000ha of the park. The pair spoke to tourists about the effect mining would have on New Zealand's clean, green image and the impact mining coal could have on the country's carbon emissions. Greenpeace political adviser Geoff Keey said the plans were just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the Government's hopes for a fossil-fuel boom.
