On Friday May 14, 2021, Fearless Grandmothers joined Sunrise Movement youth who organized a rally and bank tour as part of a day of action against the fossil fuel pipeline, Line 3, which is threatening the water supply and livelihood of indigenous people in Minnesota.
Another action will take place on Friday, June 4. Grandmothers will be taking a message to some of the major banks that fund pipelines. Look for our action on upper State Street at noon.
In light of the International Energy Agency’s declaration that no new fossil fuel projects need to be build and President Biden’s Executive Order on Climate-related Financial Risk, the banks continued funding of fossil fuel projects is increasingly out-of-step and downright CRAZY.
