Keystone Pipeline Blockade Solidarity Action in Bridgeport

Dan Fischer ’12 writes in:

As part of a week of solidarity actions with the Tar Sands Blockade…
We will rally and use visual direct action to LINK WALL STREET TO HURRICANE SANDY.

While Chase forecloses on Connecticut homes, they also finance the Keystone XL pipeline, tar sands extraction, and dirty coal (including crediting the toxic Bridgeport coal plant owner), all of which endanger communities and worsen climate change.

Whether it’s implementing economic justice or surviving climate change impacts like Hurricane Sandy, we need systemic social changes. We think the solutions are coming from Texas’s Tar Sands Blockade and New York’s Occupy Sandy, not from multinationals and megabanks like JP Morgan Chase. Join the new CT group Capitalism vs. the Climate as we stand with Tar Sands Blockade in Texas.
