Disrupt and Protest These Bank Recruitment Events
In the next few months several of the banks that are financing the Bayou Bridge Pipeline and Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) are hosting recruitment events at college campuses. The banks use these events to recruit students to internship programs and for jobs in the finance industry. They speak glowingly about what it means to work for their bank, but leave out the part about how they are financing violent companies like ETP and destructive projects like the Bayou Bridge Pipeline.
Water Protectors resisting the Bayou Bridge Pipeline have been beaten, tased and charged with felonies. Stand in solidarity with the frontlines by disrupting and demonstrating at these campus recruitment events and telling students the truth about the banks that are bankrolling the Bayou Bridge Pipeline.
Get together with members your organization, affinity group or with your friends and organize an action. It can be something ranging from a disruption, a banner drop or simply handing out flyers outside of the event.
Here are some examples of past disruptions of these kind of events:
