Nationwide protests against Commonwealth Bank - don't fund coal Reef destruction

There were protests at over 100 branches of the Commonwealth Bank in Australia and the world, protesting against the bank being in talks with Adani about possibly funding it's planned mega coal mines in the Galilee basin, Queensland. Overseas banks have all refused to fund this over environmental concerns; it would mean dredging the Great Barrier Reef and having coal ships going through it. Not to mention the huge effect on Australia's green house emissions, further affecting the Reef.
