Front line residents fighting against Sunoco Logistics‘ Mariner East Pipeline in Pennsylvania have called for a week of action from March 15-21 and in response the action group Shame on Citizens along with members of the FANG Collective demonstrated outside Citizens Bank‘s 870 Westminster St location in Providence. Citizens Bank is one of the financial companies supporting Sunoco Logistics.

Sunoco Logistics is merging with Energy Transfer Partners, and together these companies are behind several other toxic pipeline projects including the Dakota Access Pipeline, the Trans-Pecos Pipeline in Texas and the Bayou Bridge Pipeline proposed for Louisiana.
Shame on Citizens is asking people to cease doing business with Citizens Bank. You can sign up here to schedule a time to publicly close your account.
Monday’s demonstration is the latest in a series of actions that have targeted Citizens Bank, including a lock-down at their world headquarters in Providence.
