Protest Citigroup Thursday at Noon! by gatito • Wednesday April 24, 2002 at 04:56 PM Citigroup, number one funder of the fossil fuel industry and the world's biggest global warmer makes its profits at the expense of the planet and its inhabitants Protest at noon tomorrow (Thursday April 25th ) at 590 Market Street. Protest Citigroup, the world's most destructive bank! Stop the World's most destructive bank! Refuse to do business with Citigroup! Refuse to let Citi use your money to fund global warming and global forest destruction. Recently, Dutch bank ABN AMRO’s decision to cease funding for extractive industries within pristine forests set a global standard that banks must finally take responsibility for profiting from destruction. Mass species extinction, rising sea levels, and the spread of diseases are the result of global warming stemming from our deadly fossil fuel addiction. As the largest financial institution in the world and the #1 financier of fossil fuel projects, Citi determines what projects get funding and what do not. As a financial powerhouse, the world’s largest bank must take responsibility for its actions. Citi must stop profiting from this deadly industry and begin financing clean alternatives, such as solar and wind. As the race for remaining fossil fuel reserves becomes more heated, Citi has turned its investments to the Amazon, fueling an oil boom in pristine rainforest ecosystems and on sacred indigenous lands. Citi’s destruction can be traced from redlining and predatory lending, indebting people of color in our inner cities, to participating in the OCP / Ecuador pipeline where activists have put their bodies on the line to save their treasured forests. From Citigroup’s partnership with Enron in the contested Dabhol power plant in India to profiting from global warming, Citigroup lives up to its reputation as the World’s Most Destructive Bank. On Earth Day, send a strong message that now is the time to REFUSE Citi, and tell them“Not with My Money!” for more info go to http://www.ran.org add your comments
