My Bank Chose Fossil Fuels

On Saturday I was at my local Divestment Day event. There was a big turn-out by Doctors for the Environment, but mostly it was ordinary customers wanting to move their money to a bank that doesn't invest in fossil fuels.

The move spread even to parliament. Senator Larissa Waters announced on facebook that she was moving her mortgage from ANZ.

As a side note, here in Brisbane the NAB refused to let anyone close their accounts on the day. Customers were told they would have to come back again another day. It didn't seem like good customer service to me.
