Divestment Day 

TELL THE BIG BANKS: NO MORE FOSSIL FUELS!
Australia is on the verge of a massive expansion of its fossil fuel industry.

Coal and gas projects are proposed that threaten precious natural icons like the Great Barrier Reef, and also our climate, health, water and land. The big four banks will play will play a crucial role in financing these projects.

On (17 and) 18 October 2014, thousands of Australians will turn out to publicly close their accounts with the big four banks in protest over their funding of the fossil fuel industry.
