    Hi,
    thank you for accepting me in this meetup. I'm gauging interest around NYC environmental groups in organizing a peaceful demonstration in front of the headquarters of those big banks financing the DAPL, CITI bank in primis. I think their employees should be made aware of how they earn their fat bonuses coming up in these weeks and take the responsibility of the consequences.

    FYI Dec 6/7 a group of activists is already organizing a demonstration in front of Wells & Fargo Pipeline Investors Symposium https://www.facebook.com/events/1001736073283104/
    Thank you,
