Dear Friends,

The Commonwealth Bank, Australia’s biggest bank, is in crisis. From
accusations of money laundering [1] to their bosses being grilled
about oversized pay packets [2]. Now the Bank faces shareholder revolt
over their continual lending to the fossil fuel projects which are
killing the Great Barrier Reef. [3]

Greenpeace supporters are playing their part in ensuring the bank
ditches fossil fuels for good. Thousands of us chipped in to ensure
that bus ads calling out the Bank will be placed at seven high traffic
locations across Sydney before their AGM. Meanwhile hundreds of people
all over the country have been out in the streets of their town,
putting up posters exposing the Commonwealth Bank’s dirty fossil fuel
lending policies.

That’s why Robert, from Bulga, has organised some viral postering here
in Singleton. The Bank cares most about its public image and a
people-powered advertising blitz is the last thing they want.

Will you join Robert on Friday the 29th of October at 1pm at Singleton CBA?

Here’s the plan. We’ll meet at the Commonwealth Bank in Singleton, get
to know each other and collect petition signatures from the passing
public. We’ll then head off to paint the town with our own
people-powered posters. You don’t need to bring anything, everything
you need will be there on the day. It will be a fun day with a serious
purpose.

Will you join with Robert to keep the pressure up on the Commonwealth Bank?

Here are the details:
When: Friday, 29th October, 1pm – 3pm
Where: CBA Singleton (105 John St, Singleton, NSW, 2300)

The Bank is reeling from constantly being in the news and with their
AGM just around the corner now is the time to keep the pressure up
over their climate policy. From Singleton to Hornsby, Maleny to
Melbourne we are coming together to tell the Commonwealth Bank to
ditch fossil fuels for good.

Thanks for being involved,

Barney, Jonathan, Lucero and the Greenpeace Australia-Pacific team
