Shut Down Chase!
May 7, 2018 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On May 7th, folks across the country are taking action to #ShutDownChase! JPMorgan Chase (JPMC) was already the biggest financier of extreme fossil fuels on Wall Street, but now the bank has doubled down, increasing its investments in devastating fossil fuels by over $4 billion last year. Chase is putting bankers’ bonuses ahead of supporting communities and the planet.
Join us Monday, May 7th at 4pm in front of the Chase Bank branch at 4th and C Streets in San Rafael for a protest action and rally. Help us serve a giant notice of eviction to the JP Morgan Chase corporation that they are mortgaging our future and have fallen hopelessly behind in their payments of honesty, decency, and positive contributions to our world. We will let the JP Morgan Chase corporation know that we will be unrelenting in calling them out and encouraging the public to abandon their bank as a corrupt and dangerous actor until they stop financing fossil fuel damage to people and the planet.

Chase is financing some of the most destructive fossil fuel operations on the planet that lead to some of the worst human and Indigenous rights violations, and that’s why we are calling for a National Day of Action and taking our fight to JPMorgan Chase’s front door.
In 2017 Chase loaned $7 billion to tar sands corporations, over $2 billion to coal companies and $440 million to liquified natural gas companies. Not only is Chase ignoring the demands of the planet itself, but they are steamrolling the demands of their own shareholders. Chase is currently pleading with the SEC to allow them to block its own shareholders from introducing and voting on a resolution that would force the bank into completing a study into the financial, reputational and climate risks associated with its investments in tar sands. Meanwhile Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is putting out his own fake news by claiming to support the Paris Accord’s ambitions of keeping global temperature increases under 1.5°C.
