Canterbury Coal Action's Kaupapa Announced

On our second Canterbury Coal Action meeting, we decided upon a kaupapa statement.
All the work we do will be backed up by this, as a statement of who we are.

CANTERBURY  COAL ACTION is a group of people in Canterbury working for a just transition to a coal-free Aotearoa.

We recognise coal as a primary threat to Earth’s climate system.

We share our objectives with Coal Action Network Aotearoa (CANA):

1.    Phase out coal mining and coal usage within 20 years, initially by opposing new and expanded coal mines.
2.    Promote a cultural change so that mining and using coal are unacceptable.
3.    Work towards a society where people and the environment are not exploited for profit.
4.    Work towards a socially just transition to a coal-free Aotearoa New Zealand.

Canterbury is the home of Solid Energy, New Zealand’s largest exploiter ofcoal resources, and so we in Canterbury have a particular responsibility and opportunity to take our message to the corporate headquarters.
