Picket Wells Fargo (1/23/2020)

Thursday, January 23 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Our first actions of the year will be to picket at two prominent Wells Fargo branches, one in San Jose on January 23 and one in Palo Alto on January 24 . Them actions will take place from 11 AM until 2 PM. In these initial actions of the year, we will not be committing civil disobedience or risking arrest; we plan to escalate our actions in both intensity and number on at least a monthly basis as the year goes on.

We will be carrying picket signs urging Oily Wells to divest from fossil fuels and to invest in renewables, and we’ll be urging customers to take their business elsewhere until Wells Fargo does so. We will be handing out flyers to customers and passersby informing them of what we are doing and what they can do to help. Oily Wells plans to appear in order to egg us on.

Please come and join us to kick the “Be the First, Oily Wells” year off.
