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

Protesters caused delays by blockading the conference centre.

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.
