Powershifters shut down Citi Bank!
Great news from the Powershift2007 meeting:
After an intense weekend of talking, discussing, and strategizing about the overwhelming importance of stopping coal - hundreds of youth and community members converged on a Citi bank branch in downtown DC. Taking non-violent direct action, we dumped a half-ton of coal on the doorsteps of Citi, while a delegation of coal-field residents and students went inside the offices to state our concerns over Citi’s investments to their customers and employee’s. Simultaneously, hundreds of youth began coughing violently, with a massive “die-in” surrounding the bank that shut down them down for the rest of the day.
