Put Chase On The Run: Social Media Day of Action
Thursday, February 18th, 2010
From the Rainforest Action Network. Please join in this Thursday, February 18th
JP Morgan Chase is the biggest U.S. financier of mountaintop removal coal mining, the practice of blowing apart mountain peaks to cheaply access coal below the surface.
Rainforest Action Network has repeatedly asked Chase to quit funding mountaintop removal. Chase has refused. In response, RAN has decided to PUT CHASE ON THE RUN with a social media day of action.
This Thursday morning at 9am EST, DirtyMoney.org will reveal a list of simple actions people can take online, letting Chase know that America is aware of the bank’s involvement in destroying the Appalachian Mountains. Participants will have a choice of actions to take on a variety of social networks, including Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and the new collaborative video platform, Citizen Global.
RAN will be joining forces with top bloggers, social media partners, and allied organizations from around the nation to ensure Chase reevaluates its funding of mountaintop removal coal mining. Online activists will use social networks to brand jam Chase and simultaneously educate communities about the connection between Chase Bank and the obliteration of America’s most biodiverse summits.
Actions will go live at 9am EST on February 18th at www.dirtymoney.org
New partners can join the action by signing up at www.ran.org/chase.
