In the next week, JPMorgan Chase has a big decision to make. Should it continue a line of credit for the energy giant, Enbridge and their Line 3 pipeline, or finally be on the right side of history?
JPMorgan Chase is a lead bank on a $625 million line of credit to Enbridge which is about to expire. It’s time that Chase makes the decision to cut their ties with dirty pipeline companies and starts to get serious about Indigenous rights and climate change.
Line 3 will cut through 5 Ojibwe nations in Minnesota despite fierce opposition from these Native communities. Indigenous leaders, environmentalists and local landowners stand united against the pipeline. Even Minnesota’s own commerce department said the state doesn’t need the project.
It’s simple. Giving an open credit line to Enbridge will ensure more pipelines are built. With more pipelines we see more spills, worsening climate change and abuses to Indigenous rights.
JPMorgan Chase is the top US bankroller of extreme fossil fuels, tar sands, and tar sands pipelines. Today, it has the opportunity to do the right thing and stop funding Indigenous rights abuses and climate chaos — but it will only do so if we call in and demand it.
It’s time to get Chase to finally stop funding the climate crisis. Call 212-270-1111
