Climate Defiance this week traveled across the country, to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a winter resort town - being used for a prestigious banker symposium.
This gathering of the world’s elite bankers was disrupted temporarily by the group - until they were viciously suppressed by guards who showed an excess use of force.
The videos are heartbreaking - a violent repressive action taken by police desperate to appease a violent, and genocidal corporate agenda. Several members of the group were cited with federal charges.
This is from their fundraiser page, “We turned up because it's is IMPERATIVE that financial regulators meet the moment and act with the boldness that the impending climate crisis demands. Central bankers could demand that banks like Citi and JP Morgan stop funding fossil fuels. Teddy was handcuffed, arrested, and detained. He is now facing federal charges (along with two others) - even though all he did was show up peacefully and nonviolently to demand action from the Fed. “

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
