Greetings from the Greater Franklin Node of 350 Mass. We are notifying climate activists and concerned citizens about an action in Boston, this Friday afternoon, October 29th. We encourage you to attend if possible.
Across the country, leading climate justice groups are teaming up to target financial institutions that are funding the fossil fuel industry. A key organizer is the Youth Climate Finance Alliance. Young people are rising up across the world to demand an immediate end to the funding of fossil fuel expansion. As they say on their website, "We're calling out greenwashed climate commitments, uplifting frontline fights, and demanding an end to the harm. If we can stop the flow of money, we can stop the flow of oil."
The day of action for a Fossil Free Future includes a protest in Boston targeting Chase Bank. Here are the details:
- Start time: 3:45 pm, near Liberty Mutual, 157 Berkeley St Boston.
- Rally with youth and indigenous speakers.
- March to Chase - Downtown Crossing (arriving 4:30-4:45).
- Bank action led by youth.
- Action complete by 5:30.
Register here for the Boston event.
Thank you for participating, considering it, and spreading the word.
