Activists Call On AIG To Stop Investing In Fossil Fuels

Fifteen years after American International Group Inc. (AIG) nearly failed due to reckless financial practices, forcing the federal government to respond with a $182 billion bailout, climate protesters on September 14 rallied at the company’s headquarters in Manhattan to call on them end its risky underwriting and investments in fossil fuels. We hear first from speakers at the rally, including Rick Morris Public Citizen’s Climate Program followed by Alice Nascimento of NY Community for Change, and Bekah Hinojosa of South Texas Environmental Justice Network. We then have interviews with Jonathon Westin of the Climate Organizing Hub and then Rick again. The event was part of the Wave of Action leading up to the September 17 march in NYC to End Fossil Fuels
