Defund Line 3: Expose greenwashing - Day of Action
On Friday, August 13th, activists around the United States will organize actions & protests at the branches, offices, and headquarters of the banks funding Line 3. We’re calling for activists to use an “Expose Greenwashing” theme in their actions to call out the recent BS "sustainability" loans that banks have given to Enbridge.
There are two ways that you can get involved:
- Find an action near you, and RSVP to attend.
- Can’t find an action near you? Organize one! Once you register to host an event on Action Network, we’ll be in touch to support you with an Action Toolkit & support calls to support you in your organizing.
- #DefundLine3 - Art Kit
- #DefundLine3 - Organizers’ Toolkit (Note: This is the Organizers' Toolkit from the May 7th Day of Action; we will update the toolkit with ideas for "greenwashing" specific actions by no later than August 4th)
Why this action?
Enbridge is building Line 3, a pipeline that would result in a 10% expansion of the tar sands and have the same climate impact as fifty new coal-fired power plants. Yet last month, major banks, such as JPMorgan Chase and Citibank, facilitated $1.5 billion in so-called sustainability loans to Enbridge. This is greenwashing at its worst -- so we're calling for a Day of Action on Friday, August 13th to call it out. Can you join us by organizing a #DefundLine3 - Expose Greenwashing action in your community?
