The full Seattle City Council voted unanimously on February 7, 2017 to divest 3 billion dollars of their business from Wells Fargo Bank, a creditor for the Dakota Access Pipeline project in North Dakota. KBCS’s Yuko Kodama recently spoke with one of Yes Magazine’s senior editors, James Trimarco on the phone about their coverage of the divestment. Seattle is now the first municipality to divest from a bank because of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
