Raleigh NC Rise Together to say NoBBP NoACP NoMVP
Start: Tuesday, July 31, 2018•11:30 AM
North Carolina is ready to #RiseTogether in solidarity with our allies in the Gulf. Here in NC We're fighting to stop the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines, which threaten dozens of our communities, our clean water, and our climate future. A diverse coalition of activists are organizing two major actions - On July 30 in Charlotte, and July 31 in Raleigh.
Our Demands are:
- #Divest from fossil fuels - especially Bank of America and Wells Fargo - who are the two largest investors in these pipelines.
- No Pipelines - especially the ACP and MVP, which Governor Roy Cooper has the power stop.
- Clean Energy Now - we demand 100% renewable energy and a just transition with nobody left behind - local cities, towns and counties can lead the way!
This event will meet in front of Governor Roy Cooper's office in the administration building at 11:30 am. We'll rally with signs, banners and artwork for about an hour to encourage Gov. Cooper to reverse his previous bad decision and suspend the ACP. Shortly after 1pm we'll march to Wells Fargo at 150 Fayetteville St and demand they stop funding these dangerous pipelines. Finally, we'll march to Duke Energy's offices at 411 Fayetteville St just after 1:30 to deliver our demands there. The total distance between these 3 locations is less than 1 mile. We'll walk back to the administration building at about 2pm and there is ample parking nearby.
