Right now is a critical stage in the fight to stop the Galilee Basin mega coal mines that will cook the climate and trash the Reef.
The movement to stop these disastrous projects has united people from all walks of life -- we’ve built power in our communities, hit the global headlines and changed governments. But now, we must unite stronger and more powerfully than ever to ensure that CommBank publicly rules out involvement in these disastrous projects.
It’s time to Raise the Heat on CommBank.
From 19-23 May, we will put Commonwealth Bank’s reputation on the line. Either the bank heeds our call and publicly rules out funding the mines and ports OR they face a creative & unrelenting campaign.
From Tuesday to Saturday, each day will be more powerful than the last. From handing out information to CommBank customers to creative and bold actions -- we will show the Bank that action is not negotiable.
Raise the Heat in your area
We want CommBank to see our movement everywhere they look. You can bring Raise the Heat to your area by adopting a local CommBank branch and organising (with plenty of support) actions at that branch during the week. Or if you don’t have the capacity to be a coordinator, check the map for branch teams that have already formed.
The first step is register -- don’t worry if you haven’t got all the details yet. After you register your branch, we’ll be in touch to offer our support.
Commonwealth Bank is already advising and likely to finance Adani, the Indian mining giant pushing the plans to open up the Galilee Basin and expand the Abbot Point coal port in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area
Over the past 18 months, thousands of CommBank customers have left the bank in protest over their fossil fuel funding. Now is our moment to take this campaign to the next level and make sure that they don’t touch Australia’s worst new coal project.
