350 Spokane organized a solidarity action utilizing one of Backbone's inflatable pipelines as part of the #DivestTheGlobe actions taking place around the world.
30 protestors carried Backbone-made oil pipeline and other signs to 3 banks in downtown Spokane. They delivered a letter and a petition in coordination with the #DivestTheGlobe international day of action planned by Mazaska Talks.
Protestors marched from Bank of America, which had locked down, to Wells Fargo, where three leaders made remarks on a PA system, then to Chase bank.
The purpose of the day of action was to pressure the Equator Banks meeting in Brazil Oct 23-25 to revise their social and environmental justice investment Principles to require "free, prior, and informed consent" from Indigenous people impacted by projects and to stop funding any new fossil fuel infrastructure.
