Join The Protest Against Exxon In Dallas On May 25, 2016
On Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 7:30 AM, people from across Texas will meet outside the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center at 2301 Flora Street in Dallas, to protest a stockholder meeting there.
The corporation: ExxonMobil.
The fossil fuels behemoth is financially powerful but ethically bankrupt. Records indicate that Exxon knew years and years ago – 1977 – that its petroleum products significantly contribute to global climate change, which is already causing devastation all over the planet. Deaths from heat waves in the United States are already rising, and are expected to rise by 27,000 every year by the end of this century. Trillions of dollars of financial assets are at risk.
They’re calling the protest the Divest from Deception Rally. It’s a chance to confront ExxonMobil’s investors, which aren’t restricted to Wall Street fat cats. The state pension funds of New York, California and Vermont are among those who prop up ExxonMobil through their investment in the company’s continuing extraction and burning of fossil fuels.
If you can get there without burning fossil fuels yourself, please go.
