Join 350.org in demanding that Congress take immediate action to protect our communities, not Big Oil.
Big Oil is looking to Congress and the Trump Administration to bail them out with our taxpayer dollars. .
What Congress invests in now through bailouts, subsidies, loan forgiveness, and health care coverage will determine who recovers.
Sign the petition to support a People’s Bailout
Here’s the text:
I’m writing to urge you to oppose a stimulus package that includes a bailout of the fossil fuel industry.
Support a People’s Bailout:
1. Prioritize and address the immediate material needs of people and not that of corporations. #PeoplesBailout
2. Support workers and communities hit by the crisis, not corporate executives.
3. Don’t bailout the fossil fuel industry.
4. Establish a plan of action and invest in a Green New Deal that prioritizes people over profits.
Big Oil companies will use this “stimulus package” from taxpayers to drill for oil, build more destructive pipelines, and worsen the climate crisis. It does nothing for communities facing the first hand impacts of the pandemic.
We implore you to take a bold stance for communities across the country and for our climate. Reject a bailout for Big Oil.
