Talented New Zealand Musician, Erin Crowley’s music video “Against the Man” with footage from Otago protests 2014 against New Zealand’s first ever permitted deep sea drilling wells. Erin says “I have worked hard to create something that will ignite that passion for kaitiakitanga.”
Erin’s music inspires us all to keep resisting the government’s drive for revenue at the expense of our ‘paradise homeland’. As she says “This is my homeland, and I’ll make a stand. I don’t want no man to take it away.”
Your first stand against the man, VOTE!
Have a good think about your party vote this month. We know that the Green Party and Internet Mana have both committed to a moratorium on deep sea drilling.
Your second stand to protect our land, WRITE!
Your third stand to protect our freedoms, TELL SOMEONE!
Talk to your family and friends, stay informed, discuss this difficult moment in our history. If you’d like to host us, Oil Free Otago can come give an informative presentation or help hang up a sign at your home.

Thank you Erin. We put our hands in your hands, and we will fight against these plans auctioning off our seas!
