NYC: Tell BlackRock to stop making a killing on killing!

BlackRock has billions of dollars invested in weapons companies such as Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, Elbit, and General Dynamics. They also invest in civilian gun manufacturers.  They position themselves as a company that is socially responsible, yet they continue to invest in weapons. They are making a killing on killing. The misconduct by weapons companies ranges from groundwater contamination to labor violations and includes overinflated pricing and overbilling the federal government. These companies are flagrantly engaging in bad business practices while misusing limited federal resources. By investing in weapons manufacturers, BlackRock is propping up wars, brutal conflicts, and human rights violations on a global scale. In addition to contributing to the atrocities of war, all five of these companies have dozens of documented cases of misconduct and the collective misuse of billions of federal dollars. BlackRock even has an iShares fund that exclusively profits off of weapons of war.  

Join us May 23 as we gather outside the BlackRock shareholders meeting to call on the investment firm to hold to its own standards of being socially responsible by divesting from Lockheed Martin and the military-industrial complex and to say stop making a killing on killing. BlackRock’s New York office, on 51st between Park and Madison, across from the Lotte New York Palace where the shareholders will be meeting.
