Change the Coal-mines Act Amendment Act 1903

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

The NZ Government retains the rights to NZ rivers up to the point at the top of the water when it is at its fullest because of this law. Sign this petition to change the Law to not include rivers due to it not being 1903 anymore. The NZ people don't want to mine in rivers. We want to protect NZ rivers. This New Zealand Act is used as an excuse in all claims to stop private and Maori ownership of riverbeds even when there is no coal on the area of the river. Also if the Government think there is a small chance of driving a boat up a river mouth they will use this law to stop claimants.
