May 7: #StopLine3 Global Day of Action
For the past 7 years, Indigenous communities and allies across the Midwest have been working to shut down Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline because it violates treaties and spells destruction for the land, water, and climate. Indigenous-led water protectors have protested, chained themselves to earth-moving equipment, and run miles in freezing weather to bring more than 400,000 petition signatures to President Biden.
Join us and Stop The Money Pipeline at 9am at the corner of Sansome and Market for a day of nonviolent direct action. We’ll take to the streets and make sure all the banks involved in Line 3 hear us loud and clear.
On May 7, a coalition of groups are mounting worldwide protests with Stop the Money Pipeline to bring the fight to the banks that fund Line 3. Pipelines take billions of dollars to build – and banks like JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citibank, Bank of America, TD Ameritrade, Union Bank – as well as insurers like Liberty Mutual – are key to enabling the pipeline construction. Without project funding and insurance provided by loans and underwriting, work would come to a halt. If we can urgently push the banks to stop funding Line 3 — we can stop this pipeline
If you’re within reach of San Francisco, join Extinction Rebellion, Global Oil & Gas Network, Fossil Free California, and other Allies on May 7! We are mobilizing bright and early in San Francisco’s Financial District to send a clear message to the banks and investors: #DefundLine3.
