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.

I have been reading coverage of Powershift since the weekend. The Citigroup demonstration was pretty amazing and I was surprised when I first heared what went down on Its Getting Hot in Hear. You are aware of the www.energybill2007.org but have you seen the latest press release on The Auto Lobby Doesn’t Speak For Us" campaign?
