Dear Friend,

Whilst our politicians play musical chairs, we’re stepping up the divestment push with our campaign to stop the big banks investing in climate destruction.

Together with our friends at Market Forces, we’ve supported and signed on to an open letter in major Fairfax and News Limited outlets to ANZ, Commonwealth, NAB and Westpac, urging them to stop investing in the fossil fuel industry.

Sixty respected individuals have signed the letter including’s own Bill McKibben, authors Peter Carey and John Cotzee, former politician Carmen Lawrence, musicians Felix Riebl and Claire Bowditch, Professor Peter Singer, climate change scientist Lesley Hughes and former Coal Association Chair Ian Dunlop.

Will you join our call for the big four to divest and invite your friends to do the same? Click here to join:

In only a few months, you’ve already committed to move almost $30 million of your savings if the ‘big four’ don’t stop funding fossil fuels. This open letter adds the voices of 60 prominent Australians to your call.

Sign and share this letter and tell the banks to start moving money out of fossil fuels in a big way.

Yours in hope,

Charlie Wood, Australia

PS – Our letter to PM Rudd telling him to keep his climate promises has gotten great pickup. If you haven’t had a chance to sign, add your name now, and make sure he gets the message: is building a global movement to solve the climate crisis.
