#DefundKXL Week of Action! April 15-21
It's back — and so are we. The Trump Administration has approved the final federal permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. But we still have a chance to stop Keystone XL — if we get banks to drop TransCanada, the company behind this disastrous tar sands pipeline.
We need you to show banks that we won’t tolerate threats to clean water, clean air, and Indigenous rights. We're calling for a national, coordinated week of actions, starting April 15th and ending on April 21st (right before Earth Day and the People's Climate March). We will take our fight to four of the banks themselves: JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citibank and TD Bank.
Add your events into this hub, to help plug in folks across the country to local actions in their communities.
Tar sands are the worst type of oil for the climate and have contaminated the drinking water and food of First Nations people in Canada. Under international human rights standards, Indigenous people must give free, prior, and informed consent (FPIC) to development on their lands and so far TransCanada has failed to secure consent.
The fight against KXL was never just about a pipeline. It has always been and continues to be a struggle between opposing views for our collective future. Banks are a major part of this story and therefore must be a major part of our struggle for a just and climate-stable future.
