The Long Walk against Climate Change!
Auckland Anniversary day, 28 Jan 2008 coincides with the 2 year anniversary day of the occupation of Happy Valley on the West Coast of the South Island to stop the imminent destruction of a pristine native sub alpine wetland, home to thirteen endangered species, for an open cast coal mine.
On this date we will take the first step in our journey from the Auckland Sky tower, set to arrive in Happy Valley in late April.
There will be a fundraising event at Forde’s front bench Political Bar and Museum, 122 Anzac Ave on Saturday the 26th of January from 7pm. There will be Live Music, DJ’s a screen of the DVD about Happy Valley and as always convivial discussion and the usual great crack.
See a map of the route here:

Activists will be walking over 1300 km, and spreading the word about Happy Valley while talking to communities about their own local climate issues.
We will encourage discussion on how people can reduce local emissions and become more sustainable and self sufficient.
So join in with the walk as far as you can!
