Bank of America Demo

19 Nov

On Friday (the 16th) I went to a Demo against Bank of America organized by one of my friends and some people from VCU. We were protesting the way that BOA claims to be working for the environment and against global warming, and yet put their money in the hands of many energy and coal companies which are building new coal plants as well as participating in mountain top removal. Essentially, they are ruining the environment, participating in the destruction of the appalachain mountains and the communities in those areas- and putting all of those people at risk. Companies like Massey Energy are well known for their violations of the not very effective environmental laws in place in this country. We had some really good fliers, 2 big banners, and about 15 of us. We stood outside the downtown bank and handed out the fliers and talked to people. It was a totally legal action, and we did not have any trouble from the police. I think it was effective, just in that we got the idea on more people’s minds.
