Disrupt the Banks! Actions Called for Against Banks Funding the Bayou Bridge PipelineTweet
Over the next few months, the banks funding the Bayou Bridge Pipeline are holding recruitment events at college campuses.
We need you to show up and disrupt, shut down or demonstrate at these events: www.NoBayouBridge.global/bank-events
The banks use these events to recruit college students to their ranks, speaking glowingly about what it means to work for them. BUT they don’t tell these students about their role in funding violent companies like Energy Transfer Partners and destructive projects like the Bayou Bridge Pipeline.
Here in Louisiana we have been tased, beaten, and charged with felonies as we fight to stop the Bayou Bridge Pipeline. We need your support in holding the banks that are complicit in this violence accountable.

Here are some examples of what past disruptions of these types of events have looked like:
Morgan Stanley event disrupted at Brown University:
BREAKING. Folks from FANG just disrupted a Morgan Stanley recruitment event at Brown University as part of the #NoBayouBridge Week of Action. Morgan Stanley is a major financier and shareholder of Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), the pipeline company behind the Dakota Access, Bayou Bridge and Mariner East pipelines. Morgan Stanley promoted this recruitment event saying that they are a company that uses capital for creating "positive change" in the world. It's time they put these words into action and divest from ETP. Organize or join a solidarity action: http://bit.ly/NoBayouBridgeFind solidarity targets: www.NoBayouBridge.global#StopETP #WaterIsLife—The Bayou Bridge Pipeline would connect to the Dakota Access Pipeline system to bring fracked-oil from the Bakken in North Dakota to export terminals in St. James, Louisiana. The pipeline would cut across the Atchafalaya Basin and over 700 bodies of water.

Goldman Sachs event disrupted at Harvard University:
BREAKING. A Goldman Sachs recruitment event at Harvard University was just disrupted over Goldman's investments in Energy Transfer Partners (ETP). Goldman Sachs is the top shareholder of ETP and the second largest shareholder of ETP's parent company, Energy Transfer Equity, holding nearly $2 billion in shares in these companies. Goldman Sachs has also loaned ETP tens of millions of dollars. ETP is the company that built the Dakota Access Pipeline and hired armed mercenaries to brutalize peaceful water protectors at Standing Rock. ETP is now trying to build the Bayou Bridge Pipeline that would connect to the DAPL system to bring fracked-oil from North Dakota to export facilities in Louisiana. Construction on the Bayou Bridge Pipeline is happening now but communities are resisting.
