Passive Activism Strategies, Activist Tools

2/17…Passive Activism in Choosing Banks, Credit, Purchases

—-We are at a point in time where privileged people giving up slightly their full-on conveniences in banks they bank with or credit cards they acquire or products they spend their money on will be what will create massive amounts of positive change in the world.

If you think that it’s wrong to put in unwanted, massive oil pipelines under indigenous lands that will poison those lands and those people and do harm to the environment than I urge you to speak your activism with your money, investments, credit, and purchases. Taking a month to align your finances to represent the change you want to see in the world is a small price to pay for people not living with the negative effects of DAPL and similar projects brought on by your actions with money. 

Banks and credit lines directly or indirectly funding DAPL and such projects: Wells Fargo, BNP Paribas, Sun Trust, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Mizuho Bank, Citibank (Citigroup), TD Securities, Credit Agricole, Intense SanPaolo, ING Bank, Natixis, BayernLB, BBVA Securities, DNB Capital, ICBC London, SMBC Nikko Securities, Societe General, Royal Bank of Scotland, ABN Amro Capital, Bank of Nova Scotia (Scotiabank), Citizens Bank, Comerica Bank, U.S. Bank, PNC Bank, Barclays, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, Compass Bank, Credit Suisse, DNB Capital/ASA, Sumitomo Mitsui Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, UBS, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Origin Bank (formerly Community Trust), HSBC Bank.
