Native tree protest continues as man creates suspended platform

Melanie Earley Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours, a man protesting against the removal of native trees in Avondale has created a suspended platform in the hopes police won’t be able to remove him.
Arborist Zane Wedding, is currently dangling below a puriri tree on Canal Road. Wedding said his new platform would make it harder for him to be removed than previous activists arrested during the 49-day occupation.

Do you support the occupation?

Auckland Council needs to stop driving people out of their homes.

Jay from New Lynn

Every house in New Lynn is now being sold as a "development opportunity". Intensive terraced and multiunit developments are going up everywhere driving existing residents out of their homes and resulting in massive loss of greenspace and trees. This council clearly doesn't give a toss about climate change. These new developments are purely for the benefit of offshore investors who are still allowed to buy new builds. Many of the new units are still empty, priced out of reach of first home buyers. Now a massive new 5 storey development is planned for Rata Street plus others in the neighbourhood. They are all issued non notified consents in spite of multiple infringements. This council needs to be held accountable.
