The Defund DAPL Coalition is on the march to urge the SF Board of Supervisors to continue their divestment from banks financing Transcanada, the company constructing the KXL Pipeline right through Lakota lands of the Great Sioux Nation. A related demand is for the City conduct a feasibility study for a municipal bank so we can rid ourselves of these parasitic banks once and for all.
Join us as we march along Market Street, home to many branches of banks financing DAPL and Keystone XL, including Chase, Wells Fargo, Citibank, and Bank of America. This event comes in tandem with Rainforest Action Network’s Week of Action (April 15 – 21) to prevent banks from giving Transcanada project-level financing for the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Volunteers are needed:
Native singers and drummers
Food donations for participants awaiting to give testimonies at the BOS meeting
A canopy and table (in case of rain)
If you want to volunteer, please show up at 3pm and await assistance from the organizers. The SF Board of Supervisors meetings always vary on time, so there’s a likelihood that participants will miss lunch or dinner. Please donate snacks! This is an alcohol and drug free event (this includes marijuana). If there are any questions, please email sfdefunddaplcoalition@gmail. com.
