March pilgrimage will target bank with fossil fuel ties

Wells Fargo Bank has a dirty-energy secret: it’s a leading lender to the fossil-fuel industry. That’s why 350 Silicon Valley is ramping up a campaign to expose “Oily Wells” by organizing the March for Fossil Fuel Freedom, a 3-day, 34-mile march from Palo Alto to the bank’s San Francisco headquarters, March 16-18.

The pilgrimage will offer a chance to meet other concerned folks (from partners such as Idle No More SF Bay and the Sierra Club) and act as a human billboard attesting to the rapidly deepening climate crisis and the prospect for sustainable solutions. Marchers will spend two nights in church and community halls, with food and support vehicles for carrying gear provided. At “stagecoach stops” along the way, there will be educational presentations and performances (featuring Oily Wells himself). Learn more and register now at www.OilyWells.com.
