Social studie slam- NZ Nuclear Free stance

My Side-David Lange and getting rid of Nuclear sources๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ˜Š

New Zealand is nuclear-free, that means that and nuclear powered weapons, ship and vehicles are not allowed inside the country. This is all thanks to David Lange!

The former 32nd prime minister of New Zealand, David Lange was also the youngest prime minister of the 20th century. He was born in 1842 and became prime minister in 1984 and then he died in 

I strongly agree with David Lange by getting rid of all nuclear sources. Imagine if we had nuclear power here! Nuclear power is generated by a man-made product called plutonium. The byproduct of plutonium takes over 80million years to decay!

After the second world war the United States, Along with France and Britain allies infrequently tested nuclear weapons in the Pacific region. This kind of related to the rainbow warrior which is on my blog too.

Surely the rest of the world should become nuclear-free because if they use too much then in 100 years or so the whole earth (Apart from NZ because we are nuclear free! YAY!) and that would not be good!

Cleary David Lange was a good prime minister by ridding New Zealand of all nuclear sources.

Proposed Hollyford/Haast Road

Sammi- My point of view is the Conservationists/Environmentalists/Tourism Operators/Opposition


The road has the backing of all four west coast councils and a lot of locals but  I think the road should not be put in because:

It will cost over 250 million dollars to put in!

Making of the road will destroy some of the animals habitats and maybe hurt the animals!

When the road is finished you will have to pay to go on it!

They will have to build more buildings, hotels.etc. for people to stay at!

I know the road will be put in to help our country with tourism but the drive to Milford sound also has a lot of nice views and when you finally get there it makes it more special thinking that the long drive was worth it.
I agree with this point of view its not just for Social Studies Slam!

Social studies slam- the rainbow warrior

Social studies slam - Greenpeace perspective


Greenpeace is an environmental organisation that protests against nuclear bombing and other environmental issues. Greenpeace did not agree with the nuclear bomb testing happening on Mururoa atoll, an atoll is a small island made of the magma of a volcano. The Mururoa atoll was very close to New Zealand. So a boat called the rainbow warrior was a protester boat that sailed very close to the bomb testing site so the French could not bomb! There were reporters and lots of photographers on the boat and sent the videos of the French bombing and sending them around the world to make France look bad! The mururoa atoll was actually in French Polynesia land but it was very close to New Zealand but not only NZ was harmed by these bombs several Pacific islands food sources were being harmed! The Greenpeace association had succeeded by preventing these bombs, or so they thought… The french actuality bombed the rainbow warrior while it was in the Auckland harbour! Two of the crew died and Dominique Prieur and Alain Mafart who bombed the boat were arrested and sentenced to ten years in prison, HOORAY!!! But don’t get too excited, 3 years later they were snuck out and taken back to France.
