Are the vandals Greens?

I’m wondering if the vandals are Green Party or an affiliate environmental movement (Greenpeace?).

Here is my reasoning:

  • One of the messages is explicitly anti-mining/drilling, whereas Labour’s focus has been less about mining and more about asset sales/national standards and the minimum wage
  • Greenpeace has a history of stickering. Labour are not as well known for stickers, my understanding is that they tend to knock the things down
  • The Green Party has a network across NZ, needed for this kind of stunt. Especially of interest is that a number of the areas cited for vandalism in the press release are Green/hippie strongholds like Kapiti Coast, Nelson, Marlborough, Motueka, Golden Bay. That’s a disproportionate amount of effort in “environmentally sensitive” areas.
  • The press release suggests a specific anti-environment bent as well.

Anyone has information please advise the tipline.
