San Francisco - #DefundLine3 Day of Action
Start: Friday, May 07, 2021• 9:00 AM
For years, Indigenous communities and allies have been opposing the construction of the Line 3 pipeline, which would transport nearly one million barrels of dirty tar sands oil - every single day. Enbridge Energy, the company building the pipeline, has a terrible environmental track record, and this pipeline would violate several treaties with indigenous communities.
Indigenous-led water protectors and allies in Minnesota are taking action every day to stop the construction of Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline - confronting bulldozers, decision-makers, and the politicians that are putting profit before people. Pipelines take billions of dollars to build - and banks like JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citibank, Bank of America, TD Ameritrade, Union Bank - as well as insurers like Liberty Mutual - are bankrolling Line 3. If we can push the banks to not fund Line 3 - we can stop the pipeline.
As part of a Global Day of Action May 7th - we'll be mobilizing in San Francisco's Financial District to send a clear message to the banks and investors that they must #DefundLine3.
Join us at 9am at the corner of Sansome and Market (E-trade Plaza) as we work to Stop the Money Pipeline. We'll have plenty of art and signs for people to carry, but feel free to bring any signage that reflects the message of the day-- Defund Line 3!
Community safety is always a priority, and we ask everyone in attendance to adhere to the public health guidelines that have been circulated. Please:
- Wear a mask at all times
- Practice social distancing
- Use & bring hand sanitizer
- Stay home if you feel sick, or if you have been exposed to anyone with COVID or that is quarantining
