Adopt a Westpac Branch

Millions of people have been fighting to keep the Galilee Basin coal in the ground for 4 years now. We can't stop/won't stop until Adani walks away from the project, until the rights of the Wangan and Jagalingou to their land are upheld, and the climate and the Reef are protected from the carbon pollution contained in the basin.

Right now, Adani is short on cash money. That's where Westpac comes in.

To start digging their dangerous coal mine, Adani needs money from Australian banks. NAB, CommBank and ANZ have all distanced themselves from the project, but Westpac has refused. We need to show Westpac that Australians don't want their money used to prop up this dirty and dead end project. 

That's why groups across the country are 'Adopting a Westpac branch'.  Any group or individual can 'adopt' their local Westpac branch - you build relationships with the staff and talk to customers, to put pressure on the Westpac board. 

We've put together a bunch of resources for you to use to adopt your local Westpac branch, including conversation guides, petitions and action ideas, click here to access them:
