A,

Big banks are choking the Amazon to death.

Every day, ancient magical trees are slashed or burnt down to make way for hectares of soybean farms. And every day, HSBC, BlackRock, and AXA pour more cash into the companies holding the chainsaws.

You can stop the destruction: tomorrow the world’s biggest banks are meeting in Paris. It’s a huge PR stunt designed to convince investors that these banks are climate-friendly.

And now picture this: while hundreds of attendees queue to get in, a heartbreaking video of the Amazon burning is rolling on billboards right outside the event, linking it directly to the likes of... HSBC and co.

Any hope of burying their Amazon-killing investments will be slashed -- and they’ll have no choice but to pull their money from soya deforestation. But we can’t do this without you.

Indigenous communities have nurtured the Amazon for thousands of years. They’re paying for these investment deals with their lives. Big business has stolen their way of life, their rivers, their animals, and their forests.

And it’s getting worse. Agriculture’s biggest bullies are plundering this life-giving rainforest to make soy to produce ever more cheap meat -- while bankers thousands of miles away in cushty offices are underwriting this rampant destruction.

We’ve tried to play nice with these banks. But after months of polite emails and warm words about deforestation-free policies, we need to dial up the heat and go public.

That starts this Thursday -- we’ll name and shame them in front of the world -- and won’t let up until they kill these deadly soy investments.

If there’s anyone who can take on the world’s biggest financial institutions, it’s SumOfUs members like you.

In the last few months, you forced the European Central Bank to put climate at the very top of its political agenda and make history with its policy shifts. And when you helped expose AXA's complicity in war crimes, the giant insurer immediately pulled its investments from a weapons company.

Now, we need you more than ever to help stand up to the might of these banks.
