Protest US Bank No DAPL

  • 121 W Holly St Bellingham, WA 98225-4310 (map)

Join for a protest of US Bank's funding of the Dakota Access Pipeline and to call on the City of Bellingham to close their account 80 million dollar account with US Bank in solidarity with Standing Rock!

With the recent executive orders from Donald Trump to greenlight DAPL and the Keystone pipeline the fight at Standing rock is at a critical moment, but far from over!

Leaders of the movement have called on supporters everywhere to focus efforts on getting individuals and institutions to close their accounts with the major banks funding DAPL. Getting just one major bank to pull out their loans from DAPL because they are losing so much money to people closing accounts would severly damage the pipeline's financial viablitiy. With a hostile Federal and State government this is one of the greatest points of leverage that peoples' movements have to kill the black snake. 

US Bank is a major funder of DAPL and is Bellingham's primary bank. We are currently following in the footsteps of Seattle and working to get the City of Bellingham to close it's 80 million dollar account with US Bank over their funding of DAPL. 

IF YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT WITH US BANK YOU WOULD LIKE TO CLOSE DURING THE ACTION PLEASE MESSAGE OUR GROUP! 

Whether or not you can make it on Saturday please take 5 minutes to call and email your city council members and Mayor Linville and ask them to divest from US Bank! Your call and/or email DOES make a difference and only takes a few minutes!
