The protest comes after members of 350 found ANZ representatives in attendance at a recent Petroleum Club meeting. The satirical demostration required Aucklanders to vote on which fictional fossil fuel project they would like to see ANZ sponser next, in a bid to show what it would look like if ANZ was transparent about its ties to the fossil fuel industry.

A hikoi from Ihumatao is making its way through Auckland, to Jacinda Ardern’s Mount Albert office. They're hand delivering a petition of over 20,000 signatures, calling on the Prime Minister to visit the site. Our reporter Tu was there, the pouring rain, and spoke to Stewart Sowman-Lund live.

This week on the Southern Cross, Pacific Media Watch contributing editor Michael Andrew talks to the Wire team about the Pacific Islands Forum, Australia's failure to commit to Pacific climate emergency strategies, support for West Papua and the condemnation of Indonesia, and Tonga considering a ban on Facebook to stop royal slander.
The National Party's Denise Lee joins Laura Kvigstad this week to discuss Simon Bridges commentary around Ihumatoa that suggests the occupants need to "go home". Then, they have a chat around National's stance on coal following the Pacific Forum that platformed issues of climate change heavily. Finally, they round by talking about the 2018 census and whether the lack of engagement comes from an apathetic public or whether the blame rests solely on poor planning by the government.
