Mazaska Talks Day of Action Oct. 23

OCA joins Mazaska Talks Global Day of Action, October 23, 2017

Take action and participate with Olympic Climate Action in the global day of actions against major banks funding dirty oil-pipeline money.  This campaign is led by Mazaska Talks (“Money Talks” in Lakota), a coalition of grassroots Indigenous groups including the 121 First Nations and Tribes of the Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion.  The campaign calls for individuals and institutions to close their accounts with banks that finance these pipelines, which trample on indigenous rights and threaten our climate, including the Kinder Morgan pipeline project, which would send hundreds of tar sands tankers through our local waters every year.

We will gather in peaceful protest at Chase and Wells Fargo branches*:

  • Port Townsend 9 – 11 am. Meet at traffic triangle at Kearney and Sims Way.
  • Port Angeles 12 – 2 pm. Meet at Civic Field parking lot, Race St and 2nd St.
  • Sequim 3 – 5 pm. Meet at Centennial Place, E Washington St and Sequim Ave.

(*U.S. Bank has partially stepped back from certain kinds of funding for pipeline projects, but they are still heavily involved in such projects and should be avoided as well.)

If you can’t join us, consider closing your accounts in these banks and asking that institutions with which you are involved (churches, nonprofits, taxing districts) divest as well. Also sign up for the Mazaska Talks Boycott of these banks and call for these banks to adopt principles of investment that help rather than tear apart our human and ecological community.

Money talks.  One powerful method for protecting our water (health, climate) is for individuals and organizations to move their money out of banks that fund pipelines.
