In response, a coalition of groups at Standing Rock are calling for a Global Day of Action on December 1st. The main targets are financiers of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the police departments that have been brought in from across the Midwest to brutalize water protectors.
In La Crosse, supporters will be gathering outside the Wells Fargo downtown (305 5th Ave. S.). Due to the short amount of time to organize, this will not be a programmed protest with speakers. We will gather and take part in a walking protest with signage and pass out informational fliers to Wells Fargo customers and pedestrians. It would be great to have people sign up for shifts so we can stage an all-day protest from 9am - 5pm. You can indicate which time period you'll be attending when you RSVP at https://actionnetwork.org/events/day-of-action-divestfromdapl.
