The people scream

Submissions on the government’s plans to dig up our national parks close tomorrow, and it has apparently generated an enormous number of submissions. RNZ this morning said 35,000; TVNZ says 40,000. Either would make it easily the largest public consultation exercise in living memory. And most of those submissions will be against. The people are screaming; the question now is whether the government will listen.

(If you haven't already submitted, there's a submission guide here, or if you're in a hurry then you can send a quick form-submission here).
