Protesters oppose the closure of the Marsden Point Oil Refinery.
Dig In At Marsden has reached the 200 day mark on 4 November. Protesters and supporters gathered to celebrate the milestone at its main location, a camp known as ‘Spearhead’, located on land adjacent to the refinery.
With rising fuel costs hitting every family and business in New Zealand in the pocket hard, Dig In’s message is more relevant than ever:
‘The people of this land paid to construct this oil refinery so that it may guard us against the inflationary effects of geopolitical turmoil. Management have removed its oil refining capabilities through internal sabotage, leaving us reliant on international supply.
‘The time has come to get our people to reinstate the Marsden Point Oil Refinery.
‘We invite all responsible men and women to join us to popularise this endeavour.’
