Green protest

Written by  Milking It

OPINION: Greenpeace protesters did their favourite party no favours during Parliament’s final Question Time before the election.

Three protestors were escorted out of Parliament’s public gallery after heckling as a Green MP spoke.

They also draped large pink banners from the public gallery which read ‘Too Many Cows. Climate Election Now’.

They then issued three short blasts on a whistle and shouted the same “too many cows” slogan. It came as Greens co-leader Marama Davidson was asking a supplementary question to the Minister of Climate Change James Shaw. “Why are emissions falling?” she asked before the commotion kicked off.

The protestors were removed by security.
