Wells Fargo Protest
February 12 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
It is time for action. The Wells Fargo Affinity Team is planning to start a campaign to force Wells Fargo to stop funding Fossil Fuel projects. We need your help!
The climate crisis threatens everything we love and care about. Wells Fargo makes it possible by funding fracking, oil pipelines and some of the dirtiest parts of the fossil fuel industry.
Please join us for the first action in what will be a long-term campaign.
If you cannot make this action, but are interested in helping, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you can join us any time between 11:30am and 1:30pm that would be important!
11:10am- Gather in the Cesar Chavez plaza on the south side of Washington, across from the Wells Fargo Main branch.
11:30am- Start picketing action in front of the doorways of the branch. Have a meeting with the branch manager or hopefully someone higher up. We will have contacted Wells Fargo prior to the event. People who want to will go into the bank with letters to present to the bank manager demanding that WF stop financing fossil fuel projects.
This non-violent direct action will have the objective of no one being arrested.
During and after entering the branch continue picketing outside with signs, banners, chants, music, etc. There are signs that will be available for you to use.
Hand out flyers to customers and people walking by to highlight why we are protesting WF. This flyer describes why we are protesting WF and offers information on how to change banks. Have a table set up on the sidewalk with information on XR PHX and how people can join.
