TARGET BARCLAYS - Bath demo this wednesday
TARGET BARCLAYS - GLOBAL INVESTORS IN DEATH
12PM WEDNESDAY 17TH MARCH 2010, BARCLAYS BANK, MILSOM STREET, BATH
Barclays Bank are the UK's largest investor in the arms trade, with
holdings of over £7.3bn. In addition to this they also provide market
maker services to weapons manufacturers - this means purchasing shares
from a weapons manufacturer and holding them until such a time as a
buyer becomes available. Barclays props up arms dealers, in return
making a profit from every share sold in UK, and every bomb dropped in
Palestine, Iraq and wherever is profitable to invade next.
In November 2009 Barclays were targeted nationwide by individuals
concerned by capitalisation of war for profit. Yet the bank which relied
heavily upon publicly-funded liquidity schemes to survive the credit
crunch has refused to listen to public opinion. As a result Wednesday
17th March will see Barclays once again targeted nationwide.
Bankers and institutional investors are the glue that finances the state
terror wreaked by the arms trade. Weapons manufacturers do not operate
in a vacuum but are propped up by the networks of corporations and
investors which constitute the global capitalist system which puts
profit before peace, greed before people.
