ICAN activists unroll 20 meter long banner on top of BNP Paribas building

This morning, in a spectacular action for Nuclear Abolition Day, three German ICAN activists protested against BNP Paribas Bank's investments in nuclear weapons. They unrolled a 20 meter banner with the slogan "Stop Investing in Nuclear Weapons" on the roof of the building where BNP Paribas has their offices.

The French BNP Paribas bank has branches in 73 countries and employs 200,000 staff, making it one of the biggest banks worldwide. The bank supports the nuclear weapons industry with billions of dollars, last year alone amounting to 1.4 billion US dollars in loans and other financial services to companies involved in producing or maintaining nuclear weapons systems, warheads and missiles. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons (ICAN) urged its partner organisations to take part in an action day today to call for an end to BNP Paribas' deadly investments .

Martin Hinrichs of ICAN Germany said: "Investments in nuclear weapons are irresponsible. BNP Paribas is fueling the arms race by using its customers' money to finance their potential death. That has to stop." Recently, Deutsche Bank has shown that it is possible by deciding to change their guidelines to rule out investing in nuclear weapons. ICAN Germany also recently started an online action to get financial institutions in the DZ Group (Volksbank, Raifeissenbank, Spardabank) to end their financing of weapons of mass destruction.
