We are meeting at 1pm on Friday November 14 at the corner of Sutter and Sansome, and from there we will drop in on a couple of Bank of America and Citibank branches to let them know that times are changing and coal is over.

Please bring your favorite no coal chant, noise makers, and your energetic selves. We will have banners, signs, etc!

If you would like to plug in as a photographer, videographer, rally co-coordinator, or street theater performer, please let us know: faye [at] ran.org.

If you want to help prepare, we will be having a workday on Monday, November 10 from 12-5 to make materials and signs for the action, and would love some extra creativity and hands. Please RSVP to faye [at] ran.org

RAN is organizing this event. Though all of us should do everything we can to fight global warming, we should also beware of environmental organizations who have an abysmal track record of selling out the environment. RAN still supports FSC certified wood, which even Friends of the Earth has dismissed as greenwashing for the lumber industry. RAN's strategy of "negotiations" with corporations at the expense of the environment and its people, is a joke. Going to their protest would only support their greenwashing agenda. Protest the banks on a different day, and organize a new coalition without them. Target the Chevron plant in Richmond, and work with the communities there. Don't work with this organization if you know what is good for you or the cause. It's toxic.

Moreover, there's nothing about this particular demo that seems dubious, regardless of who is calling it.
