Organized by Wasser Ist Leben Berlin
This time we join with others for not just a day, but a whole week of action targeting different banks across Europe! Join us on Wednesday April 26th to keep the pressure on Deutsche Bank to divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Tell Deutsche Bank to divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline! Deutsche Bank has granted Sunoco Logistics Partner L.P. $100,000,000.00 in revolving credit and Energy Transfer Equity, L.P. $61,437,500.00 in revolving credit. Deutsche Bank is also a 3% stakeholder in Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. These are companies that are directly financing the Dakota Access Pipeline, implicating Deutsche Bank in explicit environmental racism and violation of treaty rights. #WaterIsLife #WasseristLeben #DivestDAPL
This is an all day ONLINE protest event, from 8 am to 11 pm.
HOW DOES AN ONLINE PROTEST WORK?
On April 26th , we’ll send messages to Deutsche Bank via Twitter, Facebook, email, etc. In addition to Deutsche Bank, we’ll join Italy, Spain, and Switzerland in targeting the Italian bank Intesa Sanpaolo (https://www.facebook.com/events/270470693413201), the Spanish bank BBVA (https://www.facebook.com/events/1323602384387339/) and the Swiss bank Crédit Suisse. We want to jam them with messages to divest! Take 5 minutes to demand that Deutsche Bank divests! This action is the second online action, following our March 30th efforts.
