Bank Reform Now (BRN Australia) Campaign Steaming Ahead

Bank Reform Now (BRN) and our friends have been working towards a powerful Banking Royal Commission in Australia for over 5 years. For decades both major Australian Political parties ignored calls for a proper investigation into bank misconduct. The banks continued ripping off clients and thanks to government and regulatory inaction avoided serious reforms and payment of proper compensation to bank victims.

We all have pressed on regardless because we knew this was a battle that had to be won. Public & political pressure grew and eventually, in late 2017 the banks got in first and authorised Turnbull to put up their Royal Commission on their terms. Turnbull always opposed us... now he is gone. What now?

Tips to identify a phony inquiry

Turnbull and the banks wanted a sham Royal Commission into the the finance sector. BRN has released 11 Key Performance Indicators to help us identify whether the Hayne inquiry is genuine or not. The Commissioner has the powers required to make sure each point is met. Will he do the job? Apart from successfully meeting the KPIs the other measure of the Commission's worth will of course be the brightness of the smile on the Turnbull dial.

Unemployment rate for Parliamentarians set to rise

Michael Sanderson has had a very productive week in Canberra. The politicians or advisors he met with were genuinely interested and impressed with his call for a bank funded legal aid system. There are many other politicians who are yet to respond to his invitation. The calls for justice are getting louder. We would like you to call Canberra today - details below. We understand that it may be hard to make time in some cases but only a few minutes are required. Pollies that don't respond positively to an extended Royal Commission and the Equality of Arms issue really will have a hard time justifying their place in Canberra.

Will Hayne ask for more power and time? We think he should ... here's why.

While the Hayne Royal Commission into banking and finance has uncovered some shocking misconduct it really has just scratched the surface.  BRN wants a longer and stronger inquiry. Leon Ashby lists some critical areas that still require thorough investigation.

Every Aussie politician knows exactly what the banks are doing

BRN is aiming to get a roomful of politicians and journalists to attend the 14.08.18 Media Forum hosted by Senator Anning. We have invited over 700 people. Each of those invited have been given the information below. These outrageous cases of bank criminality - as well as what will be revealed at the Forum - prove the need for a longer and stronger Banking Royal Commission. Meaningful reforms will require major changes in the way the finance system is structured. The question is .... will Commissioner Hayne, the pollies and the journalists side with the people .... or the banks?

Justice will be done when NAB fully compensates the Biritz family

In 1994 under proceeding number 5356 of 1994 George Biritz issued a Writ against the NAB in the Victorian Supreme Court. The bank was unsuccessful in its attempt to convince the Supreme Court to strike out the Biritz family Claim. That's why they presented George Biritz with a fraudulent sequestration order.
 
The National Australia Bank created fraudulent court orders and a fake judgment. The Chief Justice of the Federal Court failed to act and instead covered up systematic criminal conduct by the bank, becoming an accomplice. The Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Australia also failed to act.

Historic Court Case Set to Change Banking

Car Repossessed? ..... Jailed for non payment of tickets? .... Child Support? .... Utilities shut off? This case is of interest to you and everyone you know. Latest update in this media release.

Threat to encryption is a threat to your freedom

Draconian laws enabling the government and its agencies to spy on every citizen are being planned. Governments always seek to expand their control over citizens. It does not have to be this way. It's just a matter of changing our attitude. Are we freedom loving Aussies that love our country and its people ...... or are we serfs happy to be ruled, controlled, monitored, fleeced and taxed from birth certificate to death certificate?

Bank Royal Commission - the pressure is on

Here is what you can do to spread the reform message right around the country. We will see criminal bankers jailed if we all work together to get real justice on the agenda. Download and print these two pamphlets and put them up ... on every relevant noticeboard from Perth to Sydney and all points between - North, South, East and West.

Time to elect pollies that represent us

The time has come. A fact's a fact. The system's corrupt. It's time to act. The 2019 election might be our last chance to rescue our democracy, country and way of life. It is now very clear that politics is a circus designed to distract us from important issues. BRN will put the unmentionable issue on the agenda and encourage you to demand important structural reforms. Any politician that wants to be elected will know they must begin serving the people ... not the elite.
