#ShutDownChase: Environmentalists Occupy Bank's Seattle Office to Denounce Its Funding of Climate Disaster

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

With JPMorgan Chase's annual shareholder meeting set to take place in Texas next week, 350.org Seattle and five other environmental groups organized a demonstration to protest the bank's ongoing investment in fossil fuels, particularly tar sands.

Thank you all of you. I’m across town at work. Thank you for being there.

And there is the Seattle police, holding giant clubs ready to beat people. Thanks to all of your brave souls who went.

Thanks Aaron. But I would not call it injustice; but ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM!

"Now THIS is ridiculous. Arrests starting now."

Y’know WHY?! Because those pigs in uniform are working for a FUCKING PAYCHECK instead of working to help save our ONLY PLANET!!!
WTF are they going to spend their money on when the Earth is unlivable???!!!

Fossil fuel investment is but the tip of a very big antisocial iceberg that charcterizes Chase and its “savvy businessman” (to quote Obama) CEO Jamie Demon.

As one of the too big to fail banks that crashed the economy in 2008 that subsequently benefited from the 20 plus trillion dollar taxpayer funded bailout schemes (to the extent they have doubled market share in less than 10 years) Chase is among the banks postured to get an even bigger taxpayer and depositor funded payoff the next time they crash the economy.
