Climate protesters are eight hours into a planned 72 hour blockade of the OMV building in New Plymouth.
More activists are arriving from around the country, and organisers say they’re about to have a shift change – swapping out people forming a human barricade.

There have been some surprising interactions with Taranaki locals in the oil and gas region, captured on a Facebook live.
