Boycott Bendigo Bank #auspol

Bendigo Bank has closed The Concerned Citizens Fund’s bank account citing the group’s aims as, “…. not in keeping with the Bank’s values of diversity and inclusiveness”.

The group was maintaining the bank account to finance its objections to a $3 million mosque project planned for Rowena Street, Bendigo.

According to the 2011 census, Bendigo includes Castlemaine, Heathcote, Pyramid Hill and Kyneton.and supports only 263 Islamic residents within that area.

The Bendigo Concerned Citizens Group at last count had just under 5,000 supporters and its base was exponentially increasing.

Heads are likely to roll at the Bendigo Bank which has buckled to Islamic demands that the Concerned Citizens’ bank account be closed or financing for the planned mosque, along with private accounts, will be taken elsewhere.

But the loss of less than 100 Islamic accounts will pale in significance when compared to the loss of angry clients’ accounts of the fifth biggest bank in Australia with 540 branches across the country.

Has Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act again reared its ugly head? It is certainly threatening free speech at the behest of Bendigo Bank.

I have known many idiots with a death wish who manage banks, but the manager of Bendigo Bank Central takes the cake.

When contacted late today, the bank refused to comment. They also refused to give me the name of the Bank Manager, Chris Bone.

This was a disgrace!
So now the bank decides on who it’s customers are to be. Guess they have that right.

The interesting thing about this is the fact that about 200 Muslims live in Bendigo right now.
It’s an interesting old place. There was a gold rush there. Many people from all over the world came, e.g. Chinese and Americans.

Some lovely old buildings as well.
