David vs Goliath
A community joins forces to oppose consents to mine sands.
After decades of mining, McCallums Brothers want to take more sand for decades to come.
The community says Stop Now. Save our Sands.
“Storms come and they smash the coastline and get that sand and send it back out to sea.
And what’s happening is that sand is going out and it’s filling up holes out there and not having an opportunity to come back in again.
A relentless attack on basically our land that’s in the ocean. It’s being destroyed. It’s very hard to understand what happens in the unknown.
But if you can imagine diggers digging out the land in front of your house, and thinking that that is not going to have an impact on the other land around it? It’s really a hidden disaster.”
