On December 6th, youth and allies call for an occupation at BlackRock, an invest firm that is the world’s largest monetary backer of fossil fuel companies, Amazon deforestation and one of the largest investors in private prison corporations.
We demand that BlackRock immediately divest from fossil fuels, rainforest destruction and private prisons that hold migrant kids, families and adults.
We demand that our business leaders and elected officials support this divestment from destruction and invest in a Green New Deal in order to create jobs in renewable energy and ecological restoration.
Youth will be leading a speak out and demonstrating resilience in the face this destruction.
At 12:30pm, we will march to a congressional official’s office to demand they take action to save our future.
Extinction Rebellion is a 100% non-violent civil disobedience movement aimed at nothing less than radical system change. Our rebellion is fueled by our love for humanity and for all life on earth.
