Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.

28 Arrested in Seattle Protesting Chase Bank Fossil Fuel Ties

HeadlineFeb 21, 2020

In Seattle, Washington, 28 climate activists were arrested Thursday after they held a sit-in protest at a downtown Chase Bank branch and refused to leave. The protesters are demanding that JPMorgan Chase end its investments in fossil fuel companies that are driving the climate crisis. The protest came one day after activists shut down Seattle’s busy 2nd Avenue for about two hours, where they held a large banner reading “Road closed due to Chase’s funding of climate disaster.” Chase Bank is one of the largest financiers of TC Energy — formerly known as TransCanada — the company working to build the Coastal GasLink pipeline across British Columbia.
