Zombie March on Coal’s Top Investorts, Copley Square, Boston

by Ian Maclellan

Today zombies descended upon Copley Square to visit the local Bank of Americas and Citi Banks to raise awareness about and protest their funding for new coal power plants and coal in general.

The event was organized by Rising Tide Boston, who had this to say about the event:

Bank of America and Citibank are top investors in coal. Ravenous coal companies, funded billions of dollars by these banks, are literally blowing the tops off of mountains throughout Appalachia to extract seams of coal. Nearly 500 mountains have been decapitated, and over 1200 miles of rivers and steams have been buried with debris and toxic waste. Associated floods, landslides, and explosions have driven communities from their homes while destroying surrounding ecosystems. Burning coal is the nation’s top source of air pollution and toxic mercury, and is responsible for one-third of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. Despite all of this, more than 150 new coal-fired power plants are in various stages of development around the country. If completed, these plants would have a total effect equivalent to doubling the number of cars on our roads. Meanwhile, our government is relaxing laws in order to allow for even more coal mining.

Now’s the time. Dress in your finest gore and living dead attire, and descend on the banks, and if you’re not dead yet, take the future into your own hands and join us at 4PM on October 31st in telling Bank of America and Citibank to…

STOP MAKING A KILLING ON COAL!
COAL IS OVER! FUND THE FUTURE!
