Coal companies in Australia are pushing the government to make our fossil fuel divestment campaign and other boycotts illegal. We need your help to push back.
The Minerals Council of Australia can't win the fossil fuel divestment argument on the merits. Their desperate insistence that climate change isn't an issue, Australians love coal, and their toxic products are good for the world rings increasingly hollow.
In an article in the Guardian, they called us a “small number of noisy extremists.”
The real extremists are the coal and mining companies that are willing to wreck our country and climate for profit. The divestment movement is a huge, global network of schoolteachers, religious leaders, students, parents, and regular people who think it's time to invest in a real future and a livable climate. Add your voice if you're one of them.
So now they're trying to ban divestment campaigns outright. Don't let them get away with it.
