FRIENDS!!! WE'RE UNDER A DEADLINE!!! After weeks of public pressure, we successfully influenced the introduction of the divestment motion. Now we need your help for the critical next step! Pack the General Council meeting this Wednesday to demand LA City Council schedule the motion on the agenda to be voted on THIS WEEK! We need your support to co-occupy the council chambers! It's time the City take immediate action and move to #DivestLA!
1) Please co-occupy City Hall with us and make a public comment! Or just hold a sign!!
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 19, 10AM
200 NORTH SPRING STREET, LOS ANGELES, CA 90012
MEETING AT ROOM 340, JOHN FERRARO COUNCIL CHAMBER
2) Call city council, numbers if you swipe left! Sample script: Hello, my name is __ and I’m a California resident and voter*. I’m calling in support of the motion for Los Angeles to divest from Wells Fargo Bank. The motion must be on the agenda for THIS WEEK. Thank you. *omit if calling from elsewhere
This co-occupation is a peaceful demonstration. We encourage civic engagement, and open dialogue between elected officials and citizens in a shared public space.
We are fighting for water. We are fighting for indigenous rights. We are fighting for ALL people victimized by Wells Fargo’s corrupt banking practices. We stand united to say NO MORE. We want a future that is fair and just. We demand a financial system that works for the benefit of our communities, our earth, and the common good.
