'cya CBA' - Melbourne Raise the Heat finale
Saturday 23 May | 10am | Meet at the Public Purse for a briefing before heading to the CommBank branch at 191 Swanston Street
At 191 Swanston St we are going to hold the Melbourne finale to Raise the Heat on CommBank.
After four days of community-led actions at branches across the city and the country, we’ll bring our campaign to a crecendo with a bottomline-shaking event - to say ‘cya to the CBA’. Hundreds of customers in Melbourne and around the country will leave CommBank, fed up with the banks refusal to rule out financing for the Galilee Basin.
Just like all Raise the Heat actions the Saturday event is for every one -- customers and non-customers. There'll be powerful speeches, creative crowd photos and the media spotlight. Teams that have run actions at other branches around Melbourne during the week will converge at the Swanston St branch so we can send a strong message in unison for the finale of Raise the Heat.
Sign up today to receive the finer details over the coming weeks.

I commit to take part in Raise the Heat and:
- uphold the values of non-violent direct action and not take part in activities that cause fear, intimidation or property damage
- respect all CommBank managers, branch staff, customers and other members of the community
