The decision to discharge two Greenpeace activists without conviction is disappointing and unfair, says the Petroleum
Exploration and Production Association of New Zealand (PEPANZ).
"Hard-working ordinary New Zealanders have to follow the law and it should be the same for Greenpeace," says PEPANZ CEO
"While we absolutely respect the right to protest, this sort of action was premeditated, stupid, dangerous and illegal.
"This could encourage Greenpeace and others to illegally disrupt any activity they disagree with without fear of any
"It could well embolden 1080 protesters to blockade workers doing necessary work this summer."
