NoDAPL: Protest Wells Fargo

Friday, April 7 at 3:30 PM – 5 PM
111 Washington St, Middletown, CT 06457-2817, United States
Middletown residents have been protesting week after week at Wells Fargo, adding to the international pressure on Wells Fargo and other banks to stop funding the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) project that threatens the land, water, and sovereignty of the Standing Rock Sioux and surrounding indigenous communities in North Dakota.

Now, we plan to ramp up our efforts and bring more people than ever to the Middletown branch. We will disrupt business as usual until Wells Fargo stops funding DAPL.

We’re in solidarity with groups such as Red Warrior Society and other water protectors and indigenous warriors who have been taking direct action to block the DAPL and other fossil fuel infrastructure. They have faced dogs, pepper spray, and imprisonment while struggling against ecological chaos and colonial violence.

Indigenous leaders have called for ongoing actions against DAPL and have said Wells Fargo is a strategic bank on which to focus. See everydayofaction.org and http://www.defunddapl.org/ for more information.

This action is organized jointly by
Wesleyan Coalition for Divestment and Transparency,
Students Against the Fossil Fuel Industry and Dragonfly Climate Collective, along with other Middletown residents. Contact us if you would like to co-sponsor.
