On October 23rd, ninety-two of the world’s largest banks will meet in São Paolo, Brazil to discuss policies on the climate and Indigenous People’s rights to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC). These banks include Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) financiers such as Wells Fargo, Bank of America, J.P. Morgan Chase, and many more. Mazaska Talks is calling on indigenous people and allies everywhere to join us for 3 days of mass global action that make it clear to the banks: Financing climate disaster and the abuse of Indigenous Peoples will result in a massive global divestment movement.

Join us in a prayer circle in front of Oakland city hall at 11:30 a.m. where we will gather together for a teach in, round dance, and a prayerful walk with opportunities for people to divest from banks. Please come with positive intentions and willingness to learn about the importance of divestment and a refresh about the Standing Rock movement.

Idle No More SF Bay, DOME (defenders of mother earth) Huichin, SF Defund DAPL and others including around the globe invites you to join us October 23rd for an afternoon teach in and prayer walk to #DivesttheGlobe

Are you still waiting on the right moment to divest yourself from these banks? This action will give you that opportunity to divest yourself as we will be having a “bank of shame” walk to Citibank, Wells Fargo, and JP Morgan Chase banks to do so. We are here to support you during this transition and will have members from credit unions and benifical banks from Oakland to teach us more about these community based banks.
