Don’t bank on the bomb

Most of us have checking accounts. And we may be banking with a bank that invests in the production of nuclear bombs. If your bank invests in companies that produce bombs or parts for bomb or their delivery systems, you, by banking with them, are also supporting the making of bombs. But now you can very easily tell your bank to end their support of nuclear weapons. To do this, go on line to http://goodbyenuk.es/take-action/.  There you can send a message directly to your bank asking that they divest from their support of bombs. If they do nothing, then you can simply move your account to a bank that doesn’t support bombs. Thanks for taking this step. Divestment campaigns have proven very effective on other issues, and this approach is now for the very first time being applied to banks that invest in companies that produce bombs.
