Climate protesters managed to shut down branches of Chase bank. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“Native American leaders and climate activists protested at several Chase branches in Seattle on Monday, forcing them to close temporarily as demonstrators demanded the bank not lend to projects like the Keystone XL oil pipeline.
Police said 26 people were arrested by late afternoon. Activists said they disrupted operations at 11 Chase branches, and two other branches closed as well.
Darcy Donahoe-Wilmot, a spokeswoman for Chase, which is a unit of JP Morgan Chase & Co, declined to comment.
At a branch in downtown Seattle, about 50 protesters occupied the main lobby, where they made speeches, sang songs, held signs and banners and even ordered a tall stack of pizzas before police blocked the doors.
At another Seattle branch, a handful of protesters went inside while two others locked themselves by their necks to the front doors with bicycle locks.”
