RBC Day of Action Event - Ottawa
Friday Oct 29, 12pm
RBC - 90 Sparks Street
90 Sparks Street , OttawaHosted by: RMontpellier - Below2C, For Our Kids
Following Wet'suwet'en Leadership and Land Defenders in Gidimt’en Checkpoint, as well as participating in this Global Day of Action, we will shine a spotlight on the planet-killing investments RBC continues to make, and articulate the need for a united front against those who profit from human rights abuses and climate destruction.
We are calling for defunding of CGL and all other fossil fuel expansion projects.
RBC is the biggest funder of fossil fuels in Canada (5th in the world). It has poured over $200 Billion into fossil fuels since the Paris climate agreement was signed.
On November 1st, the UN climate conference in Glasgow (COP26) will begin, with a focus on climate finance. This gives us a crucial opportunity to pressure RBC into ceasing to finance fossil fuels and respect Indigenous rights.
Current partners engaged in the effort include Leadnow, Stand, Greenpeace, Bank on a Better Future, Climate Pledge Collective, For Our Kids, and many 350.org and XR chapters. The global events in the US and Germany are being led by student strikers, and supported by networks like Stop The Money Pipeline and dozens of others. Locally, this event is being organized by Manitoba Energy Justice. If you RSVP here, you may hear from us in the future! Let's build a movement together!
