Rising Tide activists delivered "Official Notice" letters to 25 banks across Portland with ties to coal financing: Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase, and Citi Financial. The notices read: "We regret to inform you that this bank is being put on Notice. Effective immediately, you must begin to cease all financing of coal fired power plants and related infrastructure.' The letter went on further to name all coal related corporations that we will not tolerate and finished with a three month time line for them to address our demands.
