An action to help tell the worldâ€™s richest couple that removing their money from fossil fuels is the right thing to do is going to be on the water, in kayaks â€“ the kayaktivists are back!
GatesDivest.org, 350 Seattle, Backbone Campaign, and lots of people in kayaks visit Bill and Melinda Gates’ house on Lake Washington, WA on 10/24/15 to send a loud and clear message that the Gates Foundation needs to divest from fossil fuels so they can meet their mission so “all people can live healthy, productive lives.”

Great protest. Protesters in Seattle might also mention that Gates supports Monsanto seeds and I believe has been helping to spread them across Africa through local programs.
