8:00 am on 21 February 2011

Campaigners against Brazilian energy company Petrobras drilling offshore north of East Cape say they will continue to organise education forums to drum up more support.

About 45 people attended a public forum on Friday night organised by the Ahi Ka Action Group in Gisborne.

A member of the group, Gisborne district councillor Manu Caddie, says there was a lot of anger at the meeting, which was attended by a representative of the Petroleum Exploration and Production Association.

Mr Caddie says the group will seek support from experts in the field.
