Join Extinction Rebellion, Sunflower Alliance, Fossil Free California, and allies at Wells Fargo’s SF headquarters to kick off a new round of actions demanding that Wells shift away from funding fracking and tar sands — and into clean energy and the green economy.
Wells Fargo is the #1 funder worldwide of fracked oil and gas, the #2 US funder of the Line 3 pipeline currently being fought in Minnesota and the #3 private bank overall for funding fossil fuels.
In the wake of record wildfires, hurricanes, heatwaves and drought this summer, we need to send a strong message to “WELLS FRACKO” that they’ve gone too far. To empower anyone not willing to wait for their bank to clean up its act, we’ll be educating Wells customers about ways to move their money into credit unions or good green banks.
It will be a very fun time with carnival-style booths and costumed characters roaming through the crowd, along with hordes of people holding signs and banners. Please bring any signs or banners you have that are appropriate!
You can still sign up to help with:
• flyer handout/public outreach
• banner & sign holding – David will be bringing lots of art
