Westpac Divestment Week of Action: Stop Bathhurst Coal
Coal Action Network Aotearoa and 350 Aotearoa have launched a call for Westpac to stop financing Bathurst Resources’ planned Denniston open cast coal mine.
We started by launching the campaign at their headquarters in Auckland, have since held climate crime scenes at their branches in Wellington, and over 1000 people have sent Westpac a letter calling on them to dump coal.
Already, many groups and individuals around the country are planning activities at Westpac branches. You can get in touch with these local organisers to take part in an activity:

We have put together couple of ideas what you could do and what you would need – read our WEEK OF ACTION GUIDE and FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS, let us know what, where, when is happening and we will make sure others find out about it, too.
