NYC Climate Week - CitiBank Shut Down For Hours 26 people arrested force 1000s of citibank personnel to wait

1000s of employees wait outside while Citibank is blockaded by climate activists

26 were eventually arrested after hours of disruption. The coalition included NY Communities for Change, Extinction Rebellion, Stop the Money Pipeline. This editor-in-chief was also there, and faces three charges, including Obstructing Government processes. Most people only received 2 charges, but some cases were escalated, possibly as an intimidation tactic.

   This action is being heralded as a major success, and is being covered on a number of news outlets, including local stations.
   Citibank is a the biggest funder of Exxon Mobil, the biggest fossil fuel polluter on the planet, and one of the corporations behind the most insidious think tanks - dedicated to deceiving the public and controlling government processes around oil. Citibank has dealt in these murder engines for far too long, as we’ve known the dangers of fossil fuels for a long time, now.
   Other climate protests continue today, with actions planned at the art museum.

 

In Solidarity, Will Regan

“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!”
