Last year, the Dakota Access pipeline was constructed through the Missouri River without the consent of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. The banks that financed that pipeline are also financing Tacoma LNG, Kinder-Morgan’s Trans-Mountain pipeline and three other proposed tar sands pipelines that are incompatible with life as we know it.
That is why Standing Rock leadership is calling for a global day of action targeting the banks financing the climate crisis. (Check out their call to action & video here: vimeo.com/236236302)
In response, Mazaska Talks and 350 Seattle are joining forces to organize a mass day of action: Together, we will disrupt business at all 100 branches of the pipeline banks within the City of Seattle on Monday, October 23rd.
But, not only that, we will also be meeting at Westlake Park at 11am on October 23rd for a main action. If you are NOT part of an Action Group that is part of the team visiting the 100 banks, please RSVP here so we can send you updates!
We hope to see you soon on October 23rd, as, once again, we stand with Standing Rock.
