Idle No More SF Bay Area is organizing a direct action to demand that financial institutions divest from DAPL.
From Idle No More:
"The Indigenous Women of the Americas Defending Mother Earth Treaty calls upon all of us, but especially women, to conduct a direct action to stop harming Mother Earth on every solstice and equinox. Treaty sisters are working with Friends of the Earth, United States (FOE) to call on all our relatives to join us for this winter solstice action!
Friends of the Earth collected more than 30,000 signatures demanding that financial institutions divest from funding DAPL. We will be delivering these signatures this morning to one of the top investors.
We encourage everyone to close their accounts during the month of December at the financial institutions funding DAPL and to write a letter to the CEO or CFO of the bank telling them:
- Why you closed your account: water is life, human rights violations, broken treaties, etc.
- How much was in your account
- You would consider going back to their bank if there were no longer investments in fossil fuel and fossil fuel infrastructure
- Write #NoDAPL on the outside of the envelope
