Merchants of death BAE ‘pinkwashing’


This September 2015 video says about itself:

The United States exports more weapons than any other nation – which means American companies profit from other countries’ wars.

Another video used to say about itself:

11 August 2014

Top 5 War Profiteering Companies. War is business, now more than ever. This list has the 5 companies in it that most profiteer from all the wars in the world today.

The five corporations in this video are Lockheed Martin, Boeing, BAE Systems, Raytheon and General Dynamics.

After polluting corporations’ greenwashing and artwashing, now corporations with anti-LGTBQ records doing ‘pinkwashing’.

After Big Banking doing so, now Big War Profiteering corrupt BAE.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Vigil protest against pinkwashing BAE

Wednesday 25th May 2015

LGBT activists staged a vigil outside London City Hall yesterday in protest over BAE Systems’ involvement in the capital’s annual Pride parade.

The vigil organisers, a coalition of LGBT, pacifist and anti-militarist groups, say the company’s participation is part of a “pinkwashing” campaign.

The firm sells arms to countries with homophobic laws such as Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

Peace Pledge Union co-ordinator Symon Hill said: “Of course people who work for the armed forces or arms companies are welcome at Pride.

“That is different to giving a platform to the likes of BAE Systems and the Royal Air Force to pinkwash their image despite their complicity in human rights abuses around the world.”
