HESTA - Divest For Our Health!

  • 2 Lonsdale Street Melbourne Australia (map)

--- THIS ACTION HAS BEEN POSTPONED. STAY TUNED ---

The diagnosis is in. Coal and coal seam gas are damaging our health.

But HESTA can help change this! HESTA are the industry super fund for health workers. But their investments are not healthy. Thousands of health workers have called on HESTA to divest from harmful coal and coal seam gas. But HESTA continues to invest in these damaging industries.

It's time for HESTA to get a healthy investment check-up! Join us for a public action across the road from HESTA's offices. If you're a health worker, let HESTA know by bringing your blue scrubs or white lab coat.

We'll be joined by several community members on the frontline of the battle to stay healthy in the face of coal and coal seam gas, including:

Jacinta Morahan, a doctor from Surf Coast Air Action, who will be calling on HESTA to divest from the damaging pollution of coal and coal-fired power.

Jacynta Fuamatu, a Samoan woman, who will be calling on HESTA to divest from climate impacting companies that threaten her island home.
