Today I registered my protest against war by joining the Nobel Peace Prize-winning International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN).
Their newly released edition of the Don’t Bank on the Bomb Hall of Fame shows the 36 banks, insurers and pension funds that comprehensively exclude all nuclear weapon producers.
I then immediately opened an account with the only Australian Bank they listed which doesn’t lend to corporations that produce or sell armaments. Fortunately my Super is already in one of the Super Funds they listed.
Tomorrow I’ll close my existing account. I want to be sure that not one cent of my money can be used for the arms industry, and nuclear weapons in particular.

Join #AYearInADay Citizen Science Project to see if we can all inspire one another to do more to restore planetary health
We’d love you to collaborate with us and share any actions you take to restore planetary health in the comments below or on our social media. While we welcome you to share ANY ACTION you take to inspire others, we’ll be recording NEW or EXTRA actions that people take as part of our tally, because we’re trying to inspire one another to do more than we’re already doing. Feel free to copy some of the actions our participants have been sharing – the action only needs to be NEW for you. Let us know if other people are influenced by your posts, or ours, so that we can measure outcomes of this project. To leave a comment on this blog you’ll need to enter your name and email address.
Our first step is to record 365 new actions. Our second step will be to aim for 365 new actions in one single day. Imagine if we could do it every day of the year! You can subscribe to receive a daily action from us here
