Divest the Globe Huichin
On October 23rd, ninety-two of the world’s largest banks will meet in São Paolo, Brazil to vote on a policy that upholds indigenous people’s right to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) to allow or disallow projects on their lands. These banks include Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) financiers such as Wells Fargo, Bank of America, J.P. Morgan Chase, and more. As Energy Transfer (the company behind DAPL) made clear in their lawsuit against Greenpeace and others, DIVESTMENT WORKS.
Idle No More SF Bay, DOME (defenders of mother earth) Huichin, SF Defund DAPL and others including around the globe invites you to join us October 23rd for an afternoon teach in and prayer walk to #DivesttheGlobe
We will start with an opening prayer circle outside of the Frank Ogawa/ Grant plaza in front of Oakland city hall at 11:30 a.m. please come with positive intentions and willingness to learn about the importance of divestment and a refresh about the Standing Rock movement.
Are you still waiting on the right moment to divest yourself from these banks? This action will give you that opportunity to divest yourself as we will be having a “bank of shame” walk to Citibank, Wells Fargo, and JP Morgan Chase banks to do so. We are here to support you during this transition and will have members from credit unions and benifical banks from Oakland to teach us more about these community based banks.
