Support PDX to Divest from Destruction: City Council Vote
December 13, 2016
All hands on deck one more time. THIS THURSDAY December 15 at 3:30pm the City Council will vote on the Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) recommendations and what companies to include.
Come support putting Caterpillar, Wells Fargo, and Bank of NY Mellon on the list. Caterpillar is involved with violations of the Standing Rock Sioux tribal rights and gross human rights violations against Palestinians over many years. Wells Fargo and Bank of NY Mellon are deeply complicit with the creation of private prisons. To add insult to injury, Wells Fargo was recently found to be defrauding thousands of customers by creating fake bank and credit card accounts in their names and funding the Dakota Access Pipeline.
