Stop Stealing Our Harbour

Screen Shot 2019-03-06 at 5.30.44 AM

 A 2nd WW post today – to draw your attention to what your friends at Auckland Council are up to with YOUR harbour. This is a shout out asking you to do 3 things.
1. Read this email 
2. Sign the petition (link below) to help save our harbour for future generations and stop Auckland Council selling it off for a few extra dollars, most of which will end up in the pockets of foreign-owned shipping corporationsand share it far and wide so we can reach the goal of 10,000 signatures. The petition will be handed to Auckland Council Representatives at the Protest Rally on Sunday, 10th March at 3pm at Queens Wharf.
3. If you own or have access to a boat – join the protest flotilla the Sunday (10th) at 3pm off Queens Wharf. No boat? Meetat the northern end of Queens Wharf.

  5. Murray when the wharf is extended it will mean more cruise ships can come to Auckland and not bother with anchoring and ferrying passengers. Good for auckland city.
    How loud will the uproar be when akland harbourmaster introduces a 5 knot speed safety zone around said cruise ships and the tenders scuttling back and forwards ??
    How will the nehsayers handle the ferries / pleasure boats/ tugs and barges all battling for water space around anchored floating cities and their tenders.
    Think practicly. Once its started all the fuss will be forgotten about.
    When its all finished the complainers can move onto rehoming the mudcrabs that got headaches with all the pile driving I spoze.

  6. Three ships a year require this and if we repurpose one of the other wharves we dont need it. Most ports the big ships tender ashore it is all part of the experience. Phil must be made to stick to his promise.

  7. So you think the cruise ships should anchor out in middle of the harbour and the passengers are ferried back and forwards in the tenders is the best option ? Multiple boats crossing each other plus the cruise ship swinging on anchor.
    Build the wharf and be done with it.
    It’s not a bad thing at all.
    Far better way of spending our rates than building cycle lanes for 55 year plus lycra wearing wannabes to use once a week.
    Ahh I feel better now.

  8. Make Whangarei the Port for large ships, Container and Tourist and leave Auckland for pleasure boats.
