Dakota Access pipeline protesters block Bank of America entrance in downtown Amherst.
At 9 a.m., three protesters describing themselves as “guerrilla theater activists” covered themselves in prop oil and sat under a sign decrying the bank’s funding of the Dakota Access pipeline, a controversial North Dakota energy project.
An Amherst Fire Department official spoke briefly with two other demonstrators, telling them that the protest could needlessly tie up public safety resources.
The protesters are targeting financial institutions funding the $3.7 billion, 1,200-mile-long pipeline that snakes through four states.
“Bank of America directly funds companies … that are knowingly destroying the planet,” said Dineen O’Rourke, of Amherst, who passed out information about how to transfer money from a major bank to a local credit union.

The work under the Missouri River reservoir is the last stretch of the 1,200-mile pipeline that will move oil from North Dakota through South Dakota and Iowa to a shipping point in Illinois.
CANNON BALL, N.D. — Oil could be flowing through the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline in less than two weeks, according to court documents filed by the developer just before police and soldiers started clearing a protest camp in North Dakota where pipeline opponents had gathered for the better part of a year.
The Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes say the pipeline threatens their drinking water, cultural sites and ability to practice their religion, which depends on pure water.
The drilling work is just to the north of a protest camp on federal land where pipeline opponents had gathered since August.
They have also asked U.S. District Judge James Boasberg to overturn permission for the river crossing; The Standing Rock Sioux filed a motion earlier this month, and the Standing Rock tribe filed a similar request on Wednesday.

A US federal judge has declined to temporarily halt construction of the final section of the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline.
Dave Archambault, the chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, said: “We are calling on all our Native relatives and allies to rise with us.
Meanwhile, Native Americans from across the US are holding a protest in Washington DC against the Trump administration and its approval of the pipeline.
US district judge James Boasberg’s decision, which comes a week after he held a hearing to consider the matter, means the pipeline could be in operation this month.
Native nations cannot continue to be pushed aside to benefit corporate interests and government whim.”
