Quaker Climate Activism In NYC–All Invited

Earth Quaker Action Team 2Earth Quaker Action Team Climate Disruption Investigation of PNC Bank

Saturday, September 20th, in New York City.

As UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon gathers government leaders to support “an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution,” the Earth Quaker Action Team is joining tens of thousands of people in New York City for the People’s Climate March. In addition, we’ll take action at PNC bank demanding it also take ambitious action on climate change.

In May 2013, the UN investigated claims of human rights abuses in Appalachia connected to mountaintop removal coal mining leading to birth defects, poisoned water and economic paralysis. EQAT and allies will expand our footprint to New York City, to “find” evidence of climate disruption at PNC bank in a theatrical nonviolent direct action.

We will present PNC with a copy of the letter we will send to the UN naming PNC bank as a climate disrupter.
