On the 10th of June, activists dressed as pirates confronted Wells Fargo’s installation at the Pride Festival. They demanded freedom for CeCe Donalds, a Trans woman held in a private prison funded by Wells Fargo.
he DC action created a spectacle before a dense crowd at an event drawing hundreds of thousands, but this is not the hardest Wells Fargo has been hit for this.
There is also a report, (mentioned in the interview) that Wells Fargo in Seattle got an incendiary device thrown through their window over the exact same issue: Trans prisoners held in private prisons funded by the GEO Group.
The real issue is this: Will Pride organizers continue to allow Wells Fargo, responsible for locking up GLBT folks, to have a presence at Pride?
