200 Attend “Stop Dirty Banks Climate Rally” in Albany
200 faith leaders and climate activists demonstrated in Albany on March 21, as part of a National Day of Action by The Th!rd Act to call on major banks to stop financing the expansion of the fossil fuel industry. The protestors marched to 3 of the 4 largest bank lenders to fossil fuels: Chase, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America. In part one, we hear from John Seakwood; Rev. John Paarlberg; Vanessa Arcara, co-founder of The TH!rd Act; and Xanthe Plymale, a SUNY Student and member of Zero Waste of the Capital District. By Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
