Greenpeace held a protest outside the New Zealand Petroleum Conference 2017, in New Plymouth.

Protesters caused delays by blockading the conference centre.

But some took a different approach to their direct action.

Two protesters covered themselves with what appears to be crude oil.

They then engage in a traditional Maori greeting, the Hongi, before one of the pair perform a version of the Maori Haka.
