“FED UP!: A CLIMATE JUSTICE RALLY & MARCH”(Fossil Free Federal Reserve Protest)
Start: Friday, October 29, 2021• 2:00 PM
FED UP!: A CLIMATE JUSTICE RALLY & MARCH
Fed up with the lack of climate action? Join in as we visit the Federal Reserve Bank and other institutions that approve and fund dirty energy projects. Featuring speakers, street theater, climate-spooky costumes, & more.
We’ll call on the Federal Reserve and other dirty-energy backers to end fossil-fuel financing, align Fed spending and asset purchases with the Paris Climate Agreement’s goals, and encourage bank investment and lending in low-income and communities of color.
We’ll also highlight regional climate fights, including the struggle against the recently completed Line 3, an illegal tar sands pipeline in Ojibwe treaty territory. Line 3 threatens the traditional food and water sources of the Anishinaabe peoples and the drinking water of millions of residents around Lake Michigan, where the pipeline delivers tar sands oil to the Whiting, Indiana, BP Refinery.
