Half a dozen protestors and it makes the front page of The Press?

Half a dozen people walk up a busy road in the freezing cold wind and rain all worried about non existent global warming and it’s front page news.

Protesters marched in Christchurch today to encourage people to think about climate change when they vote in next week’s election.

Several environmental groups have banded together and are trying to encourage people to consider climate a top priority when casting their vote.

Timed to encourage people to think about climate change when they vote in next week’s election, protestors marched in Christchurch today.  

Several environmental groups have banded together and are trying to encourage people to consider climate change a top priority when casting their vote.

The march ended near the Riccarton Rd roundabout with a “symbolic deflating of a 12 foot-high inflatable dinosaur, bringing an end to dinosaur thinking”.

The collaboration includes Forest and Bird, 350 Aotearoa, the New Zealand Climate and Health Council, Generation Zero Christchurch, Greenpeace, Canterbury Coal Action, Frack-Free and Oil-Free Otautahi.

Looks like they could do with some global warming down there at the moment.

The green taliban seems to be waning in support.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
