Join us for a winter solstice action to encourage divestment from banks financing the Dakota Access Pipeline. The Indigenous Women of the Americas Defending Mother Earth Treaty calls upon all of us, but especially women, to conduct a direct action on every solstice and equinox to stop harming Mother Earth. Treaty sisters, along with Friends of the Earth, United States (FOE), call on all our relatives to participate in this solstice action.
Friends of the Earth has collected more than 30,000 signatures demanding that financial institutions divest from funding DAPL. We will be delivering these signatures on 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
