Honor The Earth on Facebook: Times Square Divestment Commercial

Billboard in Times Square says ‘Defund DAPL’
Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Seminole Nation join forces

FT. YATES, N. D. –– On a slow burn for six weeks, the tribally backed movement for divesting in banks that underwrite the Dakota Access Pipeline companies came to a full rolling boil on Jan. 13, when the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and more than two dozen grassroots organizations lighted a digital billboard in New York’s Times Square demanding “Defund DAPL.”

“One month after the pipeline was effectively put on hold by the Army Corps of Engineers, major commercial banks are still banking on the project -- and losing thousands of customers a week as a result,” the Lakota Peoples Law Project said in a coinciding joint statement.

The divestment campaign is an outgrowth of indigenous prayer gatherings and grassroots direct actions since April 2016 organized in support of the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes’ lawsuit that demands Army Corps consultation on cultural preservation and environmental conservation before a decision on permitting pipeline construction across the Missouri River.

For the last six weeks, a global coalition has been pressuring banks providing project loans to the Dakota Access Pipeline to renegotiate or cancel their loans. In December, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and other indigenous leaders requested that officials from each of these banks meet with tribal representatives to hear their concerns.

By the Jan. 10 deadline for bank responses to the tribe’s meeting request, BayernLB, BNP Paribas, Mizuho Bank, and Suntrust all declined to meet.
