Friday 30th June @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Don’t Bank on the Bomb Scotland is a network of organisations campaigning for Scottish financial institutions and public bodies to divest from the companies that are involved in the production and development of nuclear weapons. The network is organising a Day of Action on Friday June 30th.
This Day of Action will be focussed on keeping up the pressure on the Royal Bank of Scotland to end its support for companies involved in the production and development of nuclear weapons.
It was reported that in January 2021, the NatWest group—which is RBS is a part—had 2.3 billion pounds in outstanding loans or underwriting activities in seven companies heavily involved in the nuclear weapons industry.
You can organise a stall or protest outside your local branch, or come down to planned stalls in Glasgow (Royal Bank of Scotland, Gordon Street) or Edinburgh (Royal Bank of Scotland, Nicholson Square). Both are running from 12noon to 1pm. Anyone is welcome to come along, even for a short time, to hold a placard or help put out hand leaflets!
If you’d like more information, support in setting up a stall or to receive leaflets, email Arthur West of DBoTBS.
