Join us for the #FAREWELLSFARGO FLASH MOB to create a massive human chain to spell out the word ‘DIVEST.’
Dec 11th @ 1PM Grand Park, Los Angeles (East side, across the street from LA City Hall)
WE NEED BODIES FOR THE AERIAL SHOT. PLEASE SHOW UP PROMPTLY AT 1PM.
The greed of America’s financial elite is the cause of relentless violence and suffrage worldwide. Shameless bankers are using our money to build private prisons, pipelines, and projects that gentrify the city. It’s time for the people to take a stand!
On December 11th, we will demonstrate that the masses are ready for real change. It’s time to move ALL of our public funds from corrupt financial institutions like Wells Fargo!
In June 2017, Divest LA successfully persuaded LA City Council to begin the process to withdraw over $40 million from Wells Fargo, a bank that has been convicted of countless acts of corruption and morally bankrupt behavior.
This month, LA City Council will vote on the Request for Proposal (RFP) banking contract which will effectively disqualify Wells Fargo from the City’s commercial banking services because of the bank’s downgraded Federal Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rating.
We’re mobilzing to broadcast to the nation that Los Angeles must officially sever all ties with this corrupt corporation that has repeatedly abused its customers and financed illegal projects such as the Dakota Access Pipeline.
It’s time to deliver solutions to sytematically transform the greed-based power structures into one that prioritizes People, Peace, and Planet!!!
