Day of Divestment Action!

THUNDERCLAP

Join this Thunderclap, and it will automatically post the above message at the exact same time on our social media networks, allowing us to create a wave of awareness for the first ever National Day of Divestment Action!

THE PROBLEM

Our banks are funding a big problem. Since 2008, the "Big 4" banks - Westpac, Commonwealth, NAB and ANZ - have loaned almost $19 billion to new coal and gas projects in Australia. These projects threaten our land, water, health, the climate and precious ecosystems like the Great Barrier Reef. Over the past 8 months, thousands of Big 4 customers have called on the banks to stop lending to fossil fuels.  But to date, those calls have fallen on deaf ears.

In 2014, the fossil fuel industry will be fighting harder than ever to get a raft of new expansion projects off the ground – from Maules Creek mine in NSW’s Leard State Forest to coal and gas ports on the Great Barrier Reef - they’ll be turning to our banks to help them out.

THE SOLUTION

Now’s our opportunity to step up the fight to protect our communities, climate and environment from the fossil fuel industry. This year, we’ll be working harder than ever to show the big banks that fossil fuels are not only bad for the climate, environment and communities – they’re bad for business. If the banks won’t divest from fossil fuels, then we’ll divest from them.

On the 3rd of May, join hundreds of bank customers switching to fossil free banks as part of Australia’s first ever national day of bank divestment action. Help us spread the word by joining the Thunderclap!
