Grave Secrets in the Pike River Mine

Posted by te2ataria on December 17, 2016

Protesters and the gate would remain, for now!

Family members and supporters of the 29 men [murdered] at Pike River in 2010 have blocked the Pike River mine access road for nearly 7 weeks after a landowner gifted them a privately-owned section of the road.

The protesters are blocking the access road to prevent mine owners Solid Energy permanently sealing it with concrete before the drift – a tunnel leading into the mine – is explored.

“However, on Saturday it emerged that a 1992 agreement between Pike River Coal and the landowner over ownership of the access road was never registered on the title.”

The gate and the protesters would stay put, while lawyers for the victims families consider their legal position, said protest leader Bernie Monk.

“We won’t be moving. If we have to leave the gate open we will. But they’ll have to drive across 29 crosses we’ve got on the road.

“We are not letting them seal off a crime site.”
