Sad news.... 10 September 2020
We are sad to tell you that we have lost the Judicial Review in the High Court against Labour Ministers over the Oceana purchase of farmland at Waihi to build a new dam. The big guys won.
It was always a risk, but we are proud we challenged the Ministers for their decision and we are hugely grateful to all of you for your support, moral and financial.
We have a long and proud history of protecting the beautiful Hauraki Coromandel, it's always been a 'David and Goliath' situation, our communities against the mega rich miners. As disappointing as this loss is, we will continue to work to keep this toxic industry out!
So again, from us all at Coromandel Watchdog, thank you for your support! Please, keep in touch with what we are doing - this ain't over yet!
Augusta and the whole Watchdog Team.
