Activists Take Aim at KKR’s New York Building, in Solidarity with Wet’suwet’en Land Defenders

HeadlineSep 28, 2020

Here in New York City, activists projected anti-colonial and environmental messages on the Manhattan headquarters of KKR overnight, calling out the private equity firm over its investment in Coastal GasLink, a $4.7 billion pipeline in western Canada. It’s part of a day of action against KKR in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en First Nation land defenders who are in a protracted battle to protect their territory from construction of the 400-mile natural gas pipeline. Protesters are also demanding KKR divest from Safariland, a major producer of tear gas and other crowd-control weapons.
