Thousands of people have protested on North Island beaches against deep sea drilling in New Zealand waters.
Protests were held at 35 beaches, with the largest crowd of over 1000 gathering at Piha for speeches and a haka.
Greenpeace energy campaigner Steve Abel says the protestors are joining in with the flotilla of six boats stationed at Anadarko’s exploration site.
Mr Abel said the turnout should send a strong message to the government and that New Zealanders do not support deep sea drilling.
Mr Abel says the size of the protests shows just how passionate New Zealanders are about saving the environment.

  1. Good for them. I think that what John Key whats to do is very rude words. I support non drilling and every house in raglan has non drilling signs outside. I would love to stop the drilling.
