    Climate protesters have taken their fight to Taranaki to disrupt an oil corporation

    Climate protesters have taken their fight to Taranaki to disrupt an oil corporation

    About one-hundred people have formed a human barricade outside of OMV's headquarters in New Plymouth.

    They're planning a rolling occupation of the building for three days.

    Greenpeace programme director Niamh O'Flynn says they're calling on OMV to surrender their deep-sea oil permits.

    She says they're there to make it clear that business as usual can't continue.
