Westpac, ANZ, NAB, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Barclays, Royal Bank of Scotland, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Citi, BNP Paribas, Société Générale and Crédit Agricole are among the domestic and international banks that have declined to fund the project.
Commonwealth Bank quit as the project’s financial adviser. But then new evidence came to light that shows CommBank is STILL helping Adani push forward with their coal mine.
The board of Indian mining firm Adani has approved its A$16 billion Carmichael coal mine. But has the Queensland government failed in its duty to be responsible with publicly owned resources such as coal?
Join us at 12:00 noon this Friday at Commonwealth Bank's branch in 96-102 Malop Street in Geelong
We need to intensify the pressure on CommBank and convince them to make the right decision on Tuesday.
Bring home made placards, photos of your children, a real-size baby doll, a piece of coal, corals!
All props are allowed and are bound to look good on the photo. We will organise a collective photo shoot and also do short interviews for social media, hand out flyers to passers-by and encourage supporters to join the campaign mailing list.
On Tuesday 13 June, Commonwealth Bank’s board will be presented with the bank’s new climate change policy. They’ll have to make a decision whether or not to leave the door open to financing projects like Adani’s terrible coal mine. Westpac ruled out Adani's mine because of the pressure we put on them - CommBank CAN rule it out too.
Twelve of the world's largest banks have already said no to Adani's megamine. And here in Australia both Westpac and NAB have ruled out contributing to this climate disaster.
Join us to show CommBank it's time to put Australians and our climate first. Together we can call on Commbank to rule out Adani.
What: #StopAdani Commbank Action
When: 12:00pm this Friday 9th June
Where: Commonwealth Bank Geelong Branch, 96-102 Malop Street.
The Adani coal mine has been given a royalty deferment, free water, free coal and 1 billion dollars of our money...That’s a terrible deal for Queensland. Tell the government not to rip us off for a mining billionaire. www.lockthegate.org.au/stop_adani #StopAdani
