The world of dirty finance should be taking a permanent ‘holiday’ from destructive dealings and propping-up polluters. We do not want our money to support ecocide at a time of climate and ecological emergency.
Polluting businesses and industries need to be ‘Closed For Good’. Today we will take action against the finance industry, using the bank holiday to outreach in our communities to TELL THE TRUTH about where our money goes and how we can all switch to cleaner money solutions which invest in a safer, sustainable future.
Planned actions include:
XR Exeter are taking to Exeter High Street to inform locals about ‘cleaner’ banks who don’t invest in dirty fossil fuel industries.
In Tavistock and Liskeard rebels will demand HSBC and Barclays clean up their act and inform the public about switching to ethical banks.
XR Dorchester, Weymouth and Portland will accompany rebels to the four worst polluting bank and financial organisations.
