Belfast Elders to rally against fossil fuel industry

Event has passed

    Seniors and their allies will hold a rally at the Bank of America call center at the corner of Schoodic Drive and Route 3 in Belfast March 21 from 8 to 9 a.m. as part of a national day of action across the U.S. to pressure major banks to stop financing the expansion of the fossil fuel industry.

    The rally is among the more than 90 events in over half the U.S. states taking place across the country, according to a news release. The day is being organized by Third Act, a group organized by environmentalist Bill McKibben, for climate activists over 60 years, with more than 50 local and national partners.

    This event will be a rally with banners and signs  along Route 3 for commuters arriving in and leaving from Belfast. The protesters will also gather at the BOA official logo and march to the center to present a letter from Third Act Maine.

    The national day of action against banks over climate change comes ahead of investor resolutions at their annual general meetings next month to pressure them to stop funding climate chaos, the release said.
