Stop Belgian bank investing in nuclear weapons

Banks and nuclear weapons

Translated from the Belgian peace movement today:

Dear activists

On Wednesday, 26 September, members of the Belgian Coalition against Nuclear Weapons will take action against the BNP Paribas Fortis bank in Brussels because of their investments in nuclear weapons.

The action will take place in Brussels at 12 noon (appointment at 11.30 am) and will last an hour. At the bank branch in Vooruitgangstraat 55, 1210 Sint-Joost-ten-Node. Place of appointment is at the roundabout where the King Albert 2 lane and the Simon Bolivarlaan intersect (if you leave the station with the stairs down and 200 meters in front of you). We will meet here at 11.30 am, action starts at 12 noon.

During the campaign we will address customers, passers-by and employees about the investments of BNP Paribas Fortis in nuclear weapons. Flyers are provided with the necessary explanation. Two people will be dressed as bankers (costume, top hat, big cigar) and there will also be a nuclear missile. We hope to attract even more attention in this way.

We cordially invite you to join us in our action.

If you are in possession of typical pink piggy banks, take them with you! In the campaign image we use a pink pig that spits out money / investments in nuclear weapons. A picture paints a thousand words.

Hopefully until Wednesday, September 26 in Brussels!
