I knew this would happen and wrote about this long ago at OpEdNews. Let's hope some of the other banks will follow soon; now is the time to be talking about this to Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and JPMorgan.

Despite all of this good news, the Sheriff's Deputies in North Dakota were recently beating protesters at Wells Fargo, until they were bleeding from the head, then covered with a towel, and then put in the law enforcement vehicles. Watch all of this here, please:


BREAKING NEWS, This report from Unicorn Riot:

"As soon as the march of water protectors approached Wells Fargo from the sidewalk, police quickly grabbed and arrested one man who was heading up the front of the march.

A few minutes after the first arrest, deputies from the Cass County Sheriff's Department grabbed another man down the street and immediately began dragging him across the ground, slamming him to the pavement, and striking him with their fists and feet.

Witnesses told Unicorn Riot that the man was placed under arrest after attempting to hand Sheriff's deputies a flower that he had picked.

Cass County Sheriff's deputies continued to brutalize the man, punching, kicking and kneeing him, after moving him near a squad car across the street. The man was heard screaming that his shoulder had been dislocated, and also yelled that he was a military veteran who was having a panic attack.

Cass County Sheriff's deputies who were restraining and beating the man were repeatedly heard saying "stop resisting" and "stop reaching for my gun." Sheriff's deputies and police officers worked to obstruct the view of the beating by creating a visual barrier with their bodies, as well as threatening all eyewitnesses present at the scene with arrest.

A bleeding wound on his head was visible as well as blood splattered on the ground. At some point during the incident, a transparent hood was placed over the man's head.

Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney was present for this entire incident. When asked if the hood placed on the man's head was a form of "hooding", considered to be a form of torture under international law, Sheriff Laney stated that the bag on the man's head was a "valid spit hood."


A press release from Greenpeace Thursday says the largest bank in Norway, DNB, sold its assets in the Dakota Access pipeline. They say this news follows the delivery of 120,000 signatures gathered by SumOfUs.org to DNB by Greenpeace Norway and others urging the bank and other financial institutions to pull finances for the project
