Protest the Banks Funding the Dakota Access and Many Other Pipelines

Seventeen financial institutions have loaned Dakota Access LLC $2.5 billion to construct the pipeline. Banks have also committed substantial resources to the Energy Transfer Family of companies so it can build out more oil and gas infrastructure:

All told, that’s $10.25 billion in loans and credit facilities from 38 banks directly supporting the companies building the pipeline.

These banks expect to be paid back over the coming decades. By locking in widespread drilling and fracking in the false name of U.S. energy independence and security, the banks are increasing our disastrous dependence on fossil fuels.
