Bairnsdale Divestment Day (12.7)

divest1  divest2

by Harry Barton

Yesterday (Friday) was a great success!  18 people showed up, we talked about divestment a little, then I went to the Commonwealth to shut my account. Apparently we presented a pretty formidable group, as the police were called immediately! Note: it’s a great way to get quick service, they really wanted us out of there.

We were very reasonable, and the Bank manager was great, listened to our purpose with interest and promised to take our message to the higher-ups. I cut up my card and we proceeded to the other 3 Banks, ANZ, NAB and Westpac, taking a bunch of photos and having good conversations along the way. Thanks so much to everyone who came!  Those who couldn’t make it, you can still do plenty in your own time.
