Respect Indigenous Leaders, End Pipeline Finance
Over forty Indigenous women sent a letter to various US financial institutions in October, asking to meet them and address the financial sector’s complicity in funding ecologically-damaging, livelihood-destroying extraction projects. These women, and the indigenous groups they represent, were greeted with silence.
To urge a response from these institutions, on Friday Dec 11th, Stop The Money Pipeline campaign activists around the country hand-delivered the very same letter to a large number of local bank branches.
