NYC May 2020 Protest BlackRock Stockholders Meeting
In May, we are taking action at the BlackRock shareholders meeting in New York City.
BlackRock has billions of dollars invested in weapons companies such as Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, Elbit, and General Dynamics. They position themselves as a socially responsible company, 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 from weapons of war.
Date and time: TBD
Location: Lotte New York Palace Hotel, 455 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10022
If the meeting is canceled, we will hold the protest outside the BlackRock headquarters, across the street from the hotel.
