Holding a pink protest sign that read, "I Stand with Standing Rock," and some paperwork from the bank, Stephanie Godbolt was met with cheers yesterday as she walked out of the downtown Wells Fargo branch in Columbia, SC. She had just closed her checking and savings accounts at the bank with which she had a fifteen year relationship, citing their involvement financing the Dakota Access Pipeline. "It felt great but I feel like it's not enough. I wish I could pull anybody off the street that had any dealing with Wells Fargo and make them come inside with me," explained Godbolt.

After marching from the state capital, 75 to 100 demonstrators, including many families, gathered outside the bank chanting messages of divestment. As demonstrators pressed up on the lobby windows, security and local police, employees and customers attempted to gauge the scenario. Eventually, a small group entered the lobby before police halted further attempts from those not holding accounts. One man, toting a "Resist" banner and wearing a University of South Carolina jacket, took a seat in the lobby as the crowd revved up their protest chants. He refused to leave and without confrontation he was placed in handcuffs and escorted away. The banner was returned to the group of protestors.

A Facebook statement from the organizers of the demonstration, 350 Columbia, professed, "We need to STAND UP to Donald Trump's recent anti-environment, anti-community executive orders, which reopened the construction of both pipelines and attacked the EPA and the Park Service (and many others). We stand in solidarity with the rights of the Native Americans, women, immigrants, Muslim Americans, Latino Americans, scientists, and many others that Donald Trump has so openly attacked in the recent days."
