#No DAPL – Stop Dakota Access Pipeline
November 15, 2016
At dawn, thousands gather at San Francisco Civic Center to stand in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in North Dakota and the massive gathering of Protectors standing against the Dakota Access Pipeline. A sunrise ceremony is followed by a march to the SF Army Corps of Engineers to increase pressure on them to not permit the laying of pipe under the Missouri River, a source of water for the tribe and millions of others.
The protest in San Francisco was one of over 200 actions across the country, calling for a stop to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline and for the protection of water, sacred sites and the planet from the fossil fuel industry and it’s funders.

Flood Wall St West – Stop Climate Chaos Profiteers – #FloodTheSystem
San Francisco Financial District – September 28, 2015
11 arrested as 200 protesters target those profiting from Climate Change.
4 people lock together inside the entrance to Bank of the West headquarters, while dozens outside paint a mural in the blocked intersection. The mural reads: “Stop Climate Chaos Profiteers #FloodTheSystem”.
Bank of the West is a subsidiary of BNP Paribas which is the French banking sector’s top financier of the coal industry. It is also one of the corporate sponsors of the United Nations climate summit (COP21) in Paris.
In the lead up to COP21 and beyond, actions are planned around the globe that call out the pressing need for people and communities EVERYWHERE to challenge the systems that are changing the climate and exist through oppression. To depend on the United Nations process would likely be a tragic mistake.
