Nick Smith next Sam Mahon target « News « Artists for save our water

Environment Minister Nick Smith formerly immortalised by Sam Mahon – in a cow dung bust, now has a pistol aimed at him by a young girl in a music video called Blood on the Stones. Canterbury artist and campaigner Sam Mahon created the manure sculpture as a protest against water pollution in the region. At the time Mahon said the cow manure was the perfect medium for a sculpture of Smith, who he believed was doing too little to protect New Zealand’s waterways from dairy farm pollution.

We understand there is soon to be a release of the decision on the Mackenzie Country water applications and it is not going to be good for birds and fish and the public’s right to enjoy their rivers so this video by Sam is a timely trigger.

After all WE ARE THE ENVIRONMENT AND WE ARE THE ONES BEING CRAPPED ON.

Is it ASSET sale or RIVER sale? « News « Artists for save our water

We are deeply concerned that none of our leaders, or would-be leaders, are drawing attention to the link between asset sales of our major generation companies and the risk of associated loss of public control of our rivers with that transaction. This is a general Appeal for our Rivers from a small core of veterans of 10 years of planning battles to protect the Lower Waitaki River from various new hydro development proposals.
