Citizens Bank and DAPL: Withdraw or We Pledge to Divest!

This petition had 60 supporters

For those currently banking with Citizens Bank, the fact that they offer Sunoco Logistics $72,500,000 in revolving credit should make you furious!

Sunoco Logistics is the company that will operate the Dakota Access Pipeline upon completion. There should be no need to summarize the atrocious behavior of these energy corporations but for a reminder here is Democracy Now:

Should you cling to pragmatic justifications for building the Dakota Access Pipeline, ask "688 institutions and nearly 60,000 individuals in 76 countries" why they recently divested trillions from the oil industry in favor of clean energy investments.

By Signing this Petition you are pledging to personally divest from Citizens Bank unless the withdraw their credit from Sunoco Logistics by February 1st, 2017.

Citizens Bank CEO Bruce Van Saun and his Board of Directors need to understand that this is an unacceptable investment that warrants major public scrutiny and resistance.

Have funds been made available through Citizens Bank to pay for rubber bullets? Attack Dogs? Tear gas? Private mercenaries? Water Cannons? Sound Cannons? Any amount of physical abuse exerted upon proud native citizens? We deserve answers to these questions directly from Citizens Bank.

Failure to respond / withdraw credit from DAPL will have major consequences for the public image of Citizens Bank and the trust held by its customers.
