On September 16 Michelle Merrill, founder and leader of the local group Novasutras, talked with Pauline Seales about the Line 3 tar sands pipeline through indigenous land in Minnesota. They discussed how local people can help by divesting – taking their money out of the big banks funding this and other oil extraction – moving to smaller local banks and credit unions.
They discussed the relation of oil extraction to ongoing climate change which is a huge and growing factor in both California fires and record breaking storms in many places.
They outlined upcoming Santa Cruz action on Sep 24th – see poster and links below.
