March on TD Bank – Rally Against Keystone XL Tarsands Pipeline

td bank

Capitalism vs. the Climate writes in with this call to action:

Rally against TD Bank, one of the primary investors of the Keystone XL Tarsands Pipeline, an extraction project which climate scientists have declared would mean “game over for the climate” if it comes to fruition. The bank is destroying the homes of communities who lie in the path of the pipeline out west, while putting working families out on the street here in CT with evictions and foreclosures. It’s time we fight back and demand justice for our communities. Students in solidarity with the working class.

Meet at the corner of Washington and High at 10:15am and join us as we march to the bank’s location at 911 Washington Street.

This February, Middletown sent more than 50 people to the historic Keystone XL rally in D.C. This is our chance to continue the struggle here on our home turf.

Working people and students need to come together and fight for our common future.

This action is being organized by Capitalism vs. The Climate.
