This event is in the past.
The NIMBIN ENVIRONMENT CENTRE and The CASINO ENVIRONMENTAL CENTRE will hold a Fossil Divestment Campaign in front of the big four major banks starting at the ANZ bank in Woodlark st on Thursday 12th of June. The object of the protest is to highlight the impact of their investments in environmental destruction. ANZ is the main financier of the open cut coal mine extension at Maules Creek. "We are determined to stop the destruction of 500 precious hectares of the Leard Forest which is one of the last temperate forest of South West NSW. This forest is home to 34 threatened species including White Box-Gum." said Stewart James, NEC president.
The ANZ bank is fully behind this project known as the Whitehaven coal project.
