NoDAPL Solidarity Rally at TD Bank-NW Bronx
TD Bank 281 W. 230th Street Bronx, NY 10463
organized by BRONX CLIMATE JUSTICE NORTH (a 350.org member group)
Last Friday, the Obama administration announced that “construction of the pipeline on Army Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe will not go forward at this time." That’s great news, but we need President Obama to go further and instruct the Army Corps of Engineers to fully revoke its permits.
Ask President Obama to STOP the pipeline construction at Standing Rock and protect the Standing Rock Sioux's water and ancestral lands.

Save the Sundarbans Rally
405 East 42nd Street
FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1854252714806794/?acti_tab=highlights
Join Bangladeshi-American community groups, FOE U.S. and allies for a rally to call for the Sundarbans to be protected and for all coal development in Bangladesh to be stopped!
The world’s largest mangrove forest – home to Bengal tigers – is in danger. The U.S. government’s Export-Import Bank is considering using OUR tax dollars to pay for a harmful coal plant in Bangladesh that would wreck the Sundarbans. On top of harming the environment, this plant would be devastating to the people who live nearby. And Ex-Im Bank could greenlight the project as soon as October.
Next week, President Obama and Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina are in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly meetings. This is our chance to send a strong message that this coal project should not move forward!
