Westpac: #StopAdani Launch – Canberra

February 17, 2017


Adani is back.

This huge coal company is again pushing their plans for what would be the largest coal mine in Australia’s history in regional Queensland.

Right now, Adani needs more money.

Twelve of the world’s largest banks have already said no to Adani’s megamine, but three of Australia’s big four banks are still sitting on the fence. NAB has said no. CommBank and ANZ have begun to give ground.

Westpac is the only bank that has said nothing.

Join us to launch a renewed push on Westpac outside their major branch in Canberra to tell Westpac to rule out this climate wrecker.

WHERE: Westpac branch in Civic, Petrie Plaza
WHEN: Monday February 20th at 10am.
WEAR: Please wear red clothes!

This is our line in the sand.

*Please RSVP at*

On the eve of the crucial climate negotiations in Paris people in cities all over the world will take to the streets asking our representatives to cooperate to make a deal that gives us a livable planet. We will march the short distance from outside Parliament House to Reconciliation Place down by the lake.

We will march in colored bands to represent our key reason for attending the rally.

Wear Green if you want to speak for the species and ecosystems that don’t have a voice.

Wear Blue if you want to stand for future generations.

Wear Yellow if you are inspired by climate change solutions.

Wear Orange if you want jobs that help rather than harm the environment.

Wear Red if you are feeling the impacts of climate change now. Bring umbrellas of the right color to keep off the sun and rain at bay.

The event lasts for about 2 and half hours and ends with a festival at Reconciliation Place down the lake.

Festival of Community Action; September 21, 10.30-15.00

September 18, 2014
On September 21, 10.30-15.00 at Chifley Meadows Austraian National University outside Chifley Library

Thousands of Australians will turn out for one of the World’s largest ever days of climate action. Our message is simple – Action, Not Words – as political leaders fail to take real action on climate change, we must empower ourselves and our communities to bring an end to fossil fuel expansion and to protect and grow our renewable energy sector.

Thousands will gather in Canberra for a Festival of Community Action. You’ll hear from community leaders about how you can get directly involved in vital campaigns: to save the Great Barrier Reef, Divest from Fossil Fuels, and Protect the Leard Forest from Coal. We’ll share skills, discuss our vision and prepare for further action. Bring your own picnic and we’ll bring the entertainment – definitely an event for all the family.
