Tell BNP Paribas: Don’t Bank on the Bomb!
September 26, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Please join us September 26, 2018 for a demonstration as part of the global day of action against BNP Paribas, a French bank that provides more than $8 billion in financing to nuclear weapons companies.
BNP Paribas offers services in corporate and investment banking, private banking and asset management. It operates in 74 countries with almost 200,000 employees and over €2 trillion in assets.
Since January 2014, BNP Paribas has provided more than US$ 8 billion in financing to nuclear weapon producing companies. In 2017 alone, BNP Paribas provided around $1.4 billion USD in new loans and other financial services that support the production and modernization of nuclear weapons.
Demonstrations are scheduled at BNP Paribas location in over 40 countries. Join us for a demonstration September 26th, from 12:00pm-1:00PM outside of BNP Asset Management Offices, 75 State Street, Boston, MA 02109. September 26 is the United Nations’ International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.
We are calling on BNP Paribas to stop all investments in nuclear weapons. On July 7th, 2017 the UN adopted the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. This treaty bans nuclear weapons and all activities related to them. BNP Paribas must end all investments in nuclear weapons to keep up with the changing times. Through coordinated action we have a strong opportunity to get BNP Paribas to divest from these weapons of Armageddon.
