This will be a protest that uses tongue in cheek humor, street theater, art, a loud festive rally and other colorful imagery. We want to create a buzz about his event, but also use it as an opportunity to create a buzz in the San Francisco area and the financial district as to what Wells has been up to and tie in our campaigns in the financial sector with local grassroots groups and campaigns.

So, if you are interested, please contact me at either sparkin@ran.org or 415-235-0596. Below is a blurb about Wells Fargo and the campaign website is http://www.dirtymoney.org. we will be having some lead up events as well. Please watch dirtymoney.org for updates.


Wells Fargo is the top financier of destructive oil, coal, logging, and mining operations that contribute to global warming, ecosystem destruction, and human rights abuses. A lot of these investments fall on the backs of those who can least afford it, including low income and immigrant communities.

Whether financing "mountaintop removal" coal mining, dirty power plants, oil drilling on pristine public lands, or profiting from third-world debt, Wells Fargo is putting profits ahead of people and the Earth, and falling out of favor from its customers and concerned citizens who demand better!

In San Francisco, a local campaign to educate Wells Fargo customers, executives, shareholders and employees about the bank's Wild West practices is kicking off. We'll be visiting the corporate headquarters in the Financial District and several branches around town creating a buzz about Wells using street theater, culture jamming, non-violent direct action and grassroots education.

It’s high time Wells Fargo get on the wagon, joining the rest of the banking industry by taking responsibility for the destructive impact of its investments and charting a new course toward economic justice and environmental sustainability.
