Idle No More SF Bay is organizing this Wednesday morning action. I hope many of you can come. If you are willing to be a monitor, read guidelines attached and email inmsolidaritysf [at] gmail.comAdded to the calendar on Sunday Nov 27th, 2016 7:52 AM
Hi powerful women allies,
We ask for you all to come together once again for all our relations at Standing Rock
As we have seen this week with the horrible violence by law enforcement, a backwards move by the U.S.A.C.E. announcing a plan to evict the Oceti Sakowin camp (from Treaty lands) rather than the DAPL permits, and the DAPL's announcement that it plans to drill under the Missouri River soon, it is urgent that we act now and that we act quickly. Another way to stop this project (and others threatening the land, air, water, nonhuman relatives) is to stop their financing - which is why we are targeting the banks. It is so urgent that we are planning this action for NEXT week! Please help us get a strong turnout of our communities divesting DAPL.
What we are asking:
Please join us and help spread the word about our next indigenous-led NODAPL BAY AREA WIDE solidarity action. Please REPLY and let us know if your group will be joining us on Wednesday, and how.
When? Wednesday 11/30 @ 8am-11am
Where? Meet at Justin Herman Plaza, SF (1 Market St. / Embarcadero bart)
What? Prayer Walk to several banking institutions funding the DAPL
***We are specially asking you to encourage your community members with accounts at Wells Fargo (Citibank - Bank of America - Chase - US Bank - Barclays - all other financiers) to consider divesting, and to contact us if they are willing to withdraw their money/close their accounts with us on Wed.11/30.

The morning will begin with prayers for the water led by the women of Idle No More SF Bay. A teach-in will be conducted on why everyone needs to divest from the financial institutions funding the Dakota Access Pipeline. This will be followed by a prayer walk to several banking institutions funding the DAPL. Educational hand-outs will be available to pass out.
If you have any questions you can email us at inmsolidaritysf [at] gmail.com or call any of the women in Idle No More SF Bay (or 925-435-7934). Those of you whose phone contacts we have, we will be calling you to loop you in.
