On December 6th, as world leaders gather at the UN’s annual climate conference, young people across America will join a national #ClimateStrike to take the momentum from September to our elected officials’ doorsteps.

We’ll meet in the Town Plaza at 4th St. and Court St. in San Rafael. The Climate Art (and Sign) Build will be from 10-11AM, Strike/March/Rally from 11AM-1PM. You can download the event flier HERE, and RSVP with the form at the bottom of this page. We’ll see you in the streets!

To stop the flow of oil, we need to stop the flow of dollars!

All new fossil fuel projects depend on major bank loans. The Dakota Access pipeline, for example, was a $3.8 billion pipeline. $2.5 billion of that was funded by major banks. Without these mega loans, fossil fuel companies simply don’t have enough money to build new pipelines, new coal terminals or new fracking facilities.

Fossil fuel financing worldwide is dominated by the U.S. megabanks, the top largest funders of fossil fuels are U.S. banks — with JPMorgan Chase far and away the worst of the worst, followed by Wells Fargo, Citi Bank and Bank of America spending tens of billions every year on new fossil fuel projects ― projects that are a disaster for our environment, our health, our climate and systematically abuse Indigenous Nations right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent.These mega private banks that so many of us trust with our life savings and are invested in with money transfers and credits cards payments are actively funding climate chaos.

A report released by the Rainforest Action Network, Sierra Club, BankTrack, Oil Change International, Indigenous Environmental Network, and Honor the Earth 05.19 shows that these banks have increased their investments in fossil fuels every year since the 2016 Paris Agreement. https://www.ran.org/bankingonclimatechange2019/

Enough is Enough! Sunrise Youth Movement Marin Hub is asking us to join them on 12/06/19, the next big strike action day across the country, to deliver the message loud and clear that funding climate disaster will not be tolerated.

We are calling on the Banks to stop fueling climate change and start directing money towards our transition to a green economy.

ARTICLE in Common Dreams: " 'Existential Threat to Civilization': Planetary Tipping Points Make Climate Bets Too Dangerous, Scientists Warn"

"I don't think people realize how little time we have left," Owen Gaffney, a global sustainability analyst at the Stockholm Resilience Center at Stockholm University and a co-author of the paper, told National Geographic. "We'll reach 1.5°C in one or two decades, and with three decades to decarbonize it's clearly an emergency situation."

STOP DRIVING !!!
GLOBAL WARMING

This December 11-15 join the 10th annual 5-day monthly boycott of cars by using public transit, walking, or biking.

Automobiles are the leading cause of CO2 emissions in our nation and the number one source of water and air pollution. Through crashes and pollution, cars are responsible for more than 2 million deaths around the world EVERY YEAR.

The power for change is in OUR hands, and at this crucial hour honoring this Indigenous-led boycott is essential to returning to a safe and sane way of life, based on respect for Mother Earth.

For more information visit: stopdriving.org

Consumer demand for oil fuels wars and devastation across the planet. Join the Boycott in solidarity with Mother Earth and the people of Venezuela and Iran!
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
