Occupy the Pipeline Rally & March
Saturday March 23
Join Occupy the Pipeline, 350.org and Sane Energy Project as we Call Out TD Bank for Greenwashing their Image!
We are Calling for All Concerned Citizens to Stop Providing Tar Dollars for Total Destruction! If you have money in TD Bank we think it's time to MOVE YOUR MONEY.
You don't have to live in NYC to join in this Action!
TD Bank aka Toronto Dominion Bank has provided the largest corporate loans for the Keystone XL Pipeline project, and was in 2012 the fourth largest institutional shareholder in Transcanada Corp. We think it's pretty silly that a bank claiming to be "carbon neutral" is playing a violently active role in propping up one of the most carbon intense and destructive infrastructure projects in recent memory. On SATURDAY, MARCH 23 at NOON, we will gather in UNION SQUARE and march to tell TD that no bank that supports KEYSTONE XL will be getting our business.
We encourage you to consider closing your account with TD, and there will be opportunities to do so during the march. Come and join us! Reach out to your networks and bring your friends!
If you are not in NYC or unable to attend, we hope you will participate by closing your accounts where ever you live.
Make sure to let them know why you are closing it.
We suggest finding your local Community Credit Union and supporting them.
We will be sending a letter to TD Bank to let them know we are not fooled by their Green Wash. The Tar is showing through!
SOLIDARITY AGAINST THE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE!
If you bank with any of these other banks, we would suggest moving your money from them as well:
Top financiers of TransCanada:
Bank of Montreal
Royal Bank of Canada
