Protest against Craddock Farms’ appeal

This Thursday morning, animal rights activists and locals from the community of Patumahoe will unite again to show joint opposition to a proposal to build one of New Zealand’s largest caged chicken farms.
Craddock Farms want to build a colony cage egg farm in Patumahoe, however were declined by Auckland City Council to build earlier this year, based on concerns about odour affecting the township.
On Thursday, Craddock Farms’ appeal will be heard in the Environment Court in Auckland. Activists and locals will be outside the court in a colourful protest to show their combined opposition.
The protest begins at 8am on Thursday morning.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
