Divest from DAPL!

  • 8100 Maryland Ave St Louis, MO 63105-3721 (map)

The Environmental Affinity Group of MOmentum is hosting a rally at the Clayton, St. Louis office of Wells Fargo Advisors, 8100 Maryland, to ask Wells Fargo to divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline unless it is rerouted, and to raise community awareness of the pipeline's dependency on bank investments. We believe that continued investment in non-renewable fossil fuels is not the way forward for our nation and that pipelines endanger public and private lands and resources. We support the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and their allies and we support their right to have treaties honored which respect the sovereignty of their land. We are also grateful to the brave water protectors because in protecting their water source, they are also protecting ours. We, like so many, live downstream from where the pipeline would tunnel under the Missouri River. Residents of the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County get 80% of our drinking water from the Missouri River. If possible, a small group will meet with Wells Fargo to discuss our concerns. Please bring your kind hearts, your voices, your signs, and drums or other musical instruments to make this a powerful and fun community event. This is a peaceful rally, protest and educational opportunity. We will be handing out flyers. (Note, the photo is from a similar rally in another city)
