"There’s nothing like a reminder from Ruaumoko why we shouldn’t allow fracking in Ikaroa-Rawhiti" said MANA Candidate Te Hamua Nikora following today’s 4.2 earthquake in Napier.

"I was in Napier when it struck and it freaked me out. We all know that our country sits on fault lines and today was a reminder of that".

"If ever there was a reason to not allow fracking to take place in Aotearoa, I would have thought being on fault lines would be more than enough. This Government thinks it’s ok to open up the lands and seas of Ikaroa-Rawhiti so that the multinational oil and gas companies can come in and plunder all that they can. Potentially they may cause the odd earthquake and turn our underground water supply into fuel lines. Why take the risk?"

"MANA’s message is simple; Frack Off!"
