Energy Transfer Partners the company behind the Dakota Access Pipeline has taken a massive hit with its stock hitting its lowest point in nearly 13 years. Since the end of last month the stock has dropped from 35.93 points to a current price of 23.2 wiping out nearly a third of its value.
This shows that the pressure the public is applying is working and you can get involved. Recently a decision was recently made by a committee of the Seattle City Council which favoured a divestment of $3 billion of city money from Wells Fargo, due to its role in the construction of the pipeline.
Now many other organisations and citizens are arranging ways to divest funds from banks that have supported the pipeline- a full list which can be found below for you to contact:
The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ*
Sumitomo Mitsui Bank
ABN Amro Capital
Bank of America
Royal Bank of Canada
Origin Bank (formerly Community Trust)
If you hold funds with any of these accounts please consider divesting and moving your funds to an ethical bank. Give them your reasons for doing so, share on social media and even create and share a video of you doing so. Call your local council to find out who is making the budget decisions and pressure them to also remove their funds. Many people are doing this now, so you will not be the first. Lastly please share this article to encourage others to do the same.
