Vermonters call on TD Bank to stop funding pipelines

BURLINGTON, Vt. - Protesters are calling on TD Bank to stop funding pipeline projects.

Monday, demonstrators took to the streets in Burlington, peaking out against large banks giving loans to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

One of them is TD Bank. It's part of a global effort to stop banks from investing in projects, protesters say, are hurting the environment and the land of indigenous peoples.

"We are joined by protests all over the country today and all over the world over the next two days. Asking banks to divest their money from fossil fuels and desicration projects," said Brynne Martin, 3560 Burlington.

Folks there are also urging consumers to take their money, and put it in to community credit unions so their savings stay local.

The protest was one of seven in Vermont and New Hampshire Monday.
