Banks Off Campus: National Day of Action
On October 24. students across the country took action against banks funding fossil fuels. They called on their schools and student unions to kick RBC and all Big Five Banks off campus.
Seven protests took place across the country, with actions at University of British Columbia Okanagan, Lakehead University Thunder Bay, University of Toronto, Simon Fraser University, University of Guelph, University of British Columbia and University of Ottawa.
We demand that RBC:
- Defund the Coastal Gaslink and Trans Mountain Expansion Pipelines
- Respect the Free, Prior and Informed Consent of Indigenous nations
- Divest from fossil fuels
We call on our student unions to:
- Kick RBC off campus
- Switch to a credit union
- Refuse sponsorships from the Big Five Banks
