This is a friendly gathering to encourage Commonwealth Bank to drop all associations with the proposed Adani Carmichael Coal Mine. The board of Commonwealth bank will meet to decide upon their climate change policy on 13th June. This is a time of national action targeting Commonwealth Bank and we are proud Bathurst is part of it. If the proposed Adani coal mine goes ahead it will be disastrous for our climate and put the nail in the coffin for the already sick Great Barrier Reef. Let's raise our voices and send Commonwealth Bank a clear message that funding coal mines is not on. Wear white, to represent bleached coral. Join in on a fun prop and sign making session at Rahamim on 5th June, 5.30pm.

The list of companies walking away from Adani’s toxic brand and climate-wrecking mega mine keeps growing. 59 companies, including 16 major insurers, have now ruled out working with Adani.
But Lloyd’s of London is still working with Adani to help the mining giant find insurance for its disastrous project.
Let’s flood the Lloyd’s office with calls now and let them know that allowing insurers to underwrite Adani’s coal mine is a risk we cannot afford!
Adani can’t build or operate their destructive coal mine and rail line without insurance.
A staff insider from US insurance giant AIG has confirmed AIG is insuring part of Adani’s mine project. Now is the time to tell AIG to insure our future, and not to renew insurance for Adani’s destructive coal mine.
On September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, the #StopAdani movement is stepping up to join the Global #ClimateStrike led by young people from the School Strike 4 Climate movement.
