(NEWSER)– Monday night's football game between the Colts and the Panthers included a surprise appearance from two protesters who rappelled from the upper deck of Bank of America stadium in Charlotte, NC, and unfurled a banner about, yes, Bank of America.
More specifically, the banner urged the bank to "Dump Dominion," referring to the energy company, reports USA Today. The protesters were making a point against a proposed natural gas facility that Dominion is seeking federal approval to build at Maryland's Cove Point, reports the Baltimore Sun. "We Are Cove Point activists are now calling on Bank of America and other lending institutions to stop financing Dominion," says the activist group in a statement at its website.
