Owner of Pike River mine’s access road gifts victims’ families legal control of the road

Colin Van der Geest, owner of Logburn Farm, where the mine’s access road is located, said he was “happy” for the families of the 29 men who were killed in the 2010 explosion to stage protests on his land until “the best possible conclusion has been reached,” according to a statement published by Newshub.

Good on ya, bro!

Victims’ families will now be able to set up a road block to Prevent Solid Energy’s attempts to seal the Pike River mine.

Pike River families’ spokesman Bernie Monk, who lost his son Michael in the disaster, said protestors would physically block the road tomorrow morning, preventing cement trucks from accessing the mine and sealing its entrance.

Van der Geest wrote in his letter his family had “deep sympathy” what the Pike River families had been going through and “respect your right to take this action”.

“We’ll be blockading it. If anyone passes that without our permission, we’ll be serving trespass notices on them,” he told Newshub.

Monk said the Department of Conservation would be granted access, as would anyone completing safety work.

“We’ll be in Wellington on Tuesday to take our new expert plan for re-entry to Bill English. He has the chance to do what his predecessor [John Key] wouldn’t and call off the sealing of the mine.

“Pike River is a crime-scene and we want to get into the drift to recover our loved ones’ remains and the evidence that might be down there.

“We’ve got a plan to do it and we’re not going to let the opportunity to get answers get buried under hundreds of tons of concrete,” Monk said.

NZ Army Caused the Second Explosion in Pike River Mine

Posted by te2ataria on November 24, 2010

Exactly as We Told You Yesterday: Rescue Operation Would Have Been “Too Expensive!”

[Besides, a prolonged rescue operation and any additional exposure as a filthy mining country would have been bad for tourism industry. Why “Clean,” “green” New Zealand really a filthy coal-mining dump!]

How Did They Cut Short the “Costly” Rescue Operation?

PM Ordered the Army to Blow Up the Mine, Killing 5 foreigners and 24 NZers!

Did you see the F**KING PM on the News YESTERDAY? His face looked as pale as panda feces; his body language said it all. He knew  decision to seal the fate of the miners was already made. The government was not going to get any of them out of the blasted mine alive, and they needed a “closure” at explosive speeds!

“It is our belief that no-one has survived and everyone will have perished,” police superintendent Gary Knowles told reporters. He knew the Army had blown up the mine on PM’s order to have an excuse for wrapping up the rescue operations in Pike River coalmine.

NZ Army killed two Australians, two Britons, a South African and 24 New Zealanders.

The explosion also destroyed all evidence of negligence by Pike River Coal Company.

It was a “win-win” formula for all concerned, except, of course, for the poor miners who had to be murdered to make it work!

THE VICTIMS LIST

Conrad John Adams, Malcolm Campbell, Glen Peter Cruse, Allan John Dixon, Zen Wodin Drew, Christopher Peter Duggan, Joseph Ray Dunbar, John Leonard Hale, Daniel Thomas Herk, David Mark Hoggart, Richard Bennett Holling, Andrew David Hurren, Jacobus (Koos) Albertus Jonker, William John Joynson [Australian,] Riki Steve Keane, Terry David Kitchin, Samuel Peter Mackie, Francis Skiddy Marden, Michael Nolan Hanmer Monk, Stuart Gilbert Mudge, Kane Barry Nieper, Peter O’Neill, Milton John Osborne, Brendan John Palmer, Benjamin David Rockhouse, Peter James Rodger, Blair David Sims, Joshua Adam Ufer, Keith Thomas Valli.
