BELLOWS FALLS TD Bank Vigil: These peaceful vigils in front of the Brattleboro branch of TD Bank is intended to both inform our fellow citizens about and to protest the bank's financial support of tar sands and the Dakota Access Pipeline. Most importantly, the vigil is an act of public solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe who have taken a courageous and principled stand to affirm their treaty rights, tribal sovereignty, and the protection of their lands, waters, cultural, and sacred sites. We are also calling out the State of VT for its extensive financial involvement with TD which is at odds with its energy policy. In fiscal year 2014, the State deposited almost 70% of its unrestricted cash in TD Bank (over $230 million based on average end-of-day balances) and during the 2-year period of FY13 and FY14, the state paid TD Bank almost $1.5 million in fees. The weekly Friday vigil at the Brattleboro branch has been highly successful in terms of educating people and convincing many to close their accounts or otherwise cease doing business with TD. noon - 1 p.m. (signs available). TD Bank (Bellows Falls), 22 Church St. Tim Stevenson: 802-869-2141, www.postoilsolutions.org.
