This morning RAN, the New York Action Network, the Waterkeeper Alliance and the Sierra Club organized a “Carnival of Destruction” outside JPMorgan Chase’s mid-town Manhattan headquarters. Scores of protesters gathered to demand that the bank stop financing the coal industry, including the devastating practice of mountaintop removal coal mining. Just last week JPMorgan Chase – financed company, Massey Energy began blasting on Coal River Mountain, an action that makes this morning’s protest even more urgent.
We called this protest a “Carnival of Destruction” because JPMC’s investments in dirty coal truly are the Most Shocking Show on Earth. Check out pictures below:
