HSQ BankExit Solidarity Action! NoDAPL

  • 1414 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

In Support of Standing Rock, a coalition of grassroots Indigenous activist groups (including the Indigenous Environmental Network, Honor the Earth & Sacred Stone Camp) are calling allies around the world to confront and apply pressure on the banks that are supporting the Dakota Access Pipeline, a network of primarily white settler allies and accomplices are answering that call by sponsoring a #BankExit Actions in Boston.

This solidarity action has been planned in collaboration with indigenous leaders in Boston, and is being held and facilitated by allies/accomplices. People of all backgrounds are welcome.
