Protest to Stop Financing of Oakland Coal Terminal
September 12, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Outside a San Francisco conference for investment professionals who belong to a group called Principles for Responsible Investment, we’ll be exposing the Bank of Montreal’s irresponsible financing of the coal terminal proposed by Bowie Resource Partners and fronted by Oakland would-be coal developer Phil Tagami … with an aim to exposing the devious cover-up of this investment’s true nature and risk. Our aim is twofold: convince Bank of Montreal to back away from arranging financing for the coal terminal; and persuade the people who advise pension funds that the bank hopes to hoodwink with this losing investment to avoid participating in funding the toxic and risky project.
This is an informational event with leaflets, colorful banners, creative picket signs, and possible street theater. Please RSVP on Facebook, or contact nocoalinoakland – at – gmail.com
