Indigenous Peoples and allies will begin an overnight protest encampment at 5:30pm. The next morning at 9:30am we will march to City Hall to call on Mayor de Blasio to divest from Wells Fargo and other banks financing the Dakota Access pipeline. Join us at the kick off of the encampment and the march! #DefundDAPL Now!
We are responding to the #NativeNationsRise call by the Standing Rock Sioux and Indigenous leaders. This is an event to affirm treaty rights and Indigenous self-determination. We're calling on:• NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, as well as Comptroller Stringer, to end the City’s pension fund investments and business with Wells Fargo and other DAPL banks. • Wells Fargo and the other banks to stop funding oil & gas pipelines such as Dakota Access; Pilgrim Pipelines; Keystone XL; Sabal Trail; Penn East; Trans-Pecos and many others that destroy Mother Earth. • We are demonstrating against Wells Fargo sub-prime rip-offs, foreclosures, financing for private prisons and other practices that plague us all.
