Australia, it’s time to divest from fossil fuels

On the 18th of October, Market Forces and 350.org will to coordinate what’s set to be Australia’s biggest ever day of divestment action on fossil fuels! We’re calling on thousands of Australians to turn out at bank branches around Australia and publicly close their accounts in protest if the big banks won’t stop funding the dirty fossil fuel industry.

Get involved – sign up for divestment day by filling in the form on this page. We’ll stay in touch with details on event locations and resources to help you switch banks and make it count.

We need to act now. Companies proposing massive new fossil fuel projects are looking for finance and our research shows the “big four” banks (ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, NAB and Westpac) play a crucial role in enabling major coal and gas projects to go ahead. Get involved in Divestment Day and tell the banks that if they choose dirty fossil fuels, their customers will be taking their money elsewhere!
