DeFundDAPL : Closing our Bank Accounts on Valentine's Day :)

  • North Berkeley's Bank of America 1910 Virginia Street Berkeley CA (map)

*** Let's meet at my home and walk up to the bank ***

We are coming to close our accounts. While we deeply appreciate Bank of America's service and warmth of staff, we can no longer turn a blind eye to where Bank of America invests our money. We will not be part of an organization actively or covertly funding the construction of pipelines, anywhere. The business of oil will eventually come to an end. We will wake up from the dream of endless consumption and into the beautiful reality that the Earth is in fact our mother, and what we are doing is hurting her, and all of us. We are capable of choosing from love, and living from connectivity. This act we do today is small, but the ripples go far beyond the individuality of ‘just us, just me’. Our prayer is that enough people wake from the dream of hopelessness, and remember the capacity to live from integrity, to live from the heart.

Let's gather at 9:45 am in front of North Berkeley's Bank of America and stand in solidarity with our Water Protectors in Standing Rock. Then, we will share an esspresso and chocolate croisant to stand in solidarity with each other. Much love. Let's do this - Alex
