Ned Kelly, Australian bushranger and icon of the underdog, made a special appearance at an anti-big-banks-and-corporations action in Byron Bay on Sat 5 November. Ned’s message to the people was: ‘Move your money out of the big banks and put them in credit unions. I won’t rob them and they won’t rob you and your children’s future by investing in toxic shit.’

The Byron Bay Polite squad was also on hand to record the crime scene, which was littered with the victims of banking malpractices. The action was part of a global day to highlight the role of big banks and their investment in unsustainable industries like uranium mining and coal-seam gas.

As he was led away by the Polite squad, Ned was heard grumbling: ‘I always knew banks were unsafe as they were vulnerable to robbers like me, but these days the banks have become the bandits.’
