Divest the Globe (#EquatorBanksAct)
October 23rd, ninety-two of the world's largest banks will meet in São Paolo, Brazil to discuss policies on the climate and Indigenous People's rights to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC). These banks include Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) financiers such as Wells Fargo, Bank of America, J.P. Morgan Chase, and many more.
Days of Action
October 23: Turtle Island & The Americas
October 24: Europe, Australia, & Aotearoa (NZ)
October 25: Africa and Asia
On these dates, Mazaska Talks is calling on people and allies everywhere to join us for three days of mass global action that make it clear to the banks: Financing climate disaster and the abuse of Indigenous Peoples will result in a massive global divestment movement.
STAND WITH INDIGENOUS PEOPLES AND MOTHER EARTH:
- Divest Your Community: Launch a campaign to divest your community from pipeline banks! ( Divest Your Community Guide here)
- Disrupt Bank Business as Usual: organize individuals to shut down their accounts at local branches of banks that finance the repression of indigenous rights & desecration of the Earth; occupy space inside a bank or at a bank’s headquarters; disrupt business at a bank branch of one of the banks financing new fossil fuel projects. (list of banks here)
- Draw Attention to Local Desecration Projects: conduct a non-violent, direct action (examples: sit-in, vigil, trash clean-up, tree-planting, art gallery) at a fossil fuel infrastructure project in your area
