Join a national Stop the Money Pipeline week of action to demand that big banks and insurance companies stop funding the expansion of fossil fuels. This spring, Wall Street banks and insurance companies are hosting their annual shareholder meetings, where many shareholder resolutions calling for an end to fossil fuel expansion are being introduced. This is Wall Street’s moment of truth: People or fossil fuels?
In San Francisco, join Extinction Rebellion, the Sunrise Movement, and Direct Action Everywhere at a downtown Wells Fargo branch for street theater, signs and flyering to alert the public to the bank’s ongoing funding of climate catastrophe.
Demand that Wells Fargo stop providing financial services to any corporation expanding its fossil fuel operations. At Wells Fargo’s general meeting last month, a shareholder resolution was presented, urging the bank NOT to fund ANY future fossil projects. The bank urged shareholders to vote against the resolution, which then got only 11% approval by shareholders—but even 11% gets leadership’s attention. Let’s keep up the pressure!
