CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Two protesters rappelled down from the upper balcony to unfurl a banner protesting Bank of America during Monday night’s game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Carolina Panthers.
The protesters dangled over fans in the lower bowl and in front of the press-box windows late in the third quarter, then displayed a banner telling the Charlotte-based financial institution to “dump Dominion.”
The banner also included a website, which outlined opposition to Bank of America’s role in financing a liquefied natural gas export facility by energy company Dominion Resources in Cove Point, Maryland. Bank of America owns the naming rights to the Panthers’ home stadium.
Those fans were still dangling by ropes with the sign well into the fourth quarter.
