To the Editor,
Please support the victims of the Victorian bush fires in a real and practical way – even if you are like me and can’t offer monetary aid.
I would like to call upon the banking institutions of Australia to sit down with the victims of the Victoria fires and offer to halve their mortgages and waive any and all fees and payments due upon the balance until each victim is back on their feet.
We need to remember it was these same banking institutions which have been in receipt of an industry specific donation of good will from the Australian people in the form of $10 billion when the banks needed it –
NOW IT IS THEIR TURN TO BEHAVE COMPASSIONATELY.
Please email, fax, ring and if necessary streak around in front of your federal and state members and senators, and your local and Head Office branches of your bank.
Let them know if they want to take advantage of the Australian community in the good times they have to be there for us in the bad.
Surely we can do this much for these people !!!!
Please pass this email to everyone you know – let’s get behind these poor people and show them what it means to be a part of this great land…..
Mark McMurtrie (NSW)
