NYC Action On Mizuho Bank
Start: Wednesday, February 01, 2017• 3:00 PM
As Trump signs an executive order to push the Dakota Access Pipeline through, we must work harder than ever to put pressure on the weakest point in the system, the banks funding the project.
On Feb. 1st as part of a global day of action, with cities in Germany, France, Netherlands, Canada, and Japapn we will target one of the 3 main financiers of the project, Mizuho Bank. Mizuho Bank's public image is vulnerable and we are working with media teams in Japan to spread our call to action there.
The time is now to stand up for what we believe in. Our system is clearly broken and at the heart of it lies our banks mindlessly seeking profit at the very costs of life. When the government will not listen we have to use the only language that works, money. DefundDAPL is a movement pulling the plug on the system by mobilizing communities to pull their money from the Big Banks until they can show they have any sense of integrity or care for our planet and our people.
Come join us as we let Mizuho Bank know we will not be silent as they sell our future. Come gather with music, art and action to tell the Banks - Water is Life. The event will run for two hours with live music, speakers, and public art making.
