Greenpeace climbers dropped a whopping banner outside CommBank’s HQ

Today, two volunteers scaled a bridge outside the Commonwealth Bank’s headquarters in Sydney to send a message the bank can’t ignore. Together, Mick and Kai climbed 25 metres up and safely hung a huge banner with a message for CommBank’s CEO Ian Narev: stop funding dirty coal.

And it was awesome. Here’s how it went down:
