March and Direct Action @ Oily Wells (Fargo)
March 16 - March 18
Join the March for Fossil Fuel Freedom, ending with a rally and nonviolent direct action at the San Francisco headquarters of Big Oil’s favorite banker, Oily Wells (Fargo). The direct action will be the conclusion of a three-day, 34-mile march from Palo Alto to San Francisco.
Indigenous people and other faith leaders will lead the march in prayer and contemplation. The march will make twelve “stagecoach stops” along the way – one for every year that remains to take urgent action on climate change – and arrive at the bank’s world headquarters just in time to crash their annual founding day celebration. Marchers are welcome to join for the entire length or portions of the route that meet their abilities and availabilities. (“Day trippers” are welcome!)
The direct action will underscore the seriousness of the climate crisis and the strength of our resolve to combat it.
