Line 3 protests shut down Wells Fargo, most downtown banks mid-day

On the 7th of May, Extinction Rebellion DC and other groups acting in solidarity with Anishaabe activists marched on multiple downdown branches of Wells Fargo. They dumped fake oil, rolled oil barrels and marched a giant Black Snake in the streets, and tried to give away wild rice soaked in oil. Cops didn't know only Wells Fargo was being targetted, so they blocked entry to all banks near the protests, effectively shutting them down.

Two Earth Day protests rocked DC one after the other. First, Extinction Rebellion DC marched 20 wheelbarrels full of cow manure (literal bullshit) as close to the White House as they could get it and dumped it. Almost immediately afterwards, Power Shift showed up at the Dept of State backing up Gulf Coast residents protesting oil and gas export-and the nearly 200 export pipelines rammed through their homelands.
