Taking the fight to #fossilbanks

Get Excited — It’s shareholder meeting (AGM to our friends in Europe) season; And this year we’re taking the fight to some of the biggest #FossilBanks and investors on the planet.

You may remember a few weeks ago when a coalition of friends (including 198 methods) released a big report showing that global banks have invested $1.9 trillion in fossil fuels. Now, those same banks, and the pipeline companies they finance are holding annual shareholder meetings and we’re ramping up the pressure to demand they #Divest from fossil fuels and climate chaos as part of a Green New Deal.

The first events start this week in Seattle and Charlotte (amongst other places) check it out and sign up to join and event near you.

OR – if you can’t make it to an event or there isn’t one planned near you right now – click here to chip in $1.98 or more to help us challenge these banks and corporate frackers in front of their shareholders with daring and creative protests.

These protests are part of a big, international, coalition that’s working to make the climate crisis a real, immediate concern for big banks and investors. Because to stop a further climate chaos, we urgently need to bring the fossil fuel era to an end. But only massive public pressure will make banks divest from pipelines, fracking wells and other climate-wrecking industries. So we need your help and participation to build that pressure on the Fossil Banks.

So what’s our plan? We’ll be all over this spring protesting at shareholder meetings. Check out some of the upcoming events or visit our Facebook page to see and RSVP:

  • April 10 – Charlotte NC and all over the Country protesting at Chase and Wells Fargo branches, in particular.
  • April 24 – Bank of America Shareholder meeting in Charlotte NC; and
  • May 7 – Dominion Shareholder Meeting Columbia SC

Lots more events are being planned – so stay tuned and drop us a line on Facebook, on Twitter, or right here on the good old fashioned website if you have an AGM/Shareholder meeting you want help planning!
