SF May 23rd Robin Hood-themed protest at BlackRock office

On May 23rd, we're taking action as Robber Baron Larry Fink and BlackRock holds its stockholders meeting in New York City. Come dress as Robin Hood as we merrily hand out leaflets during the lunch hour in San Francisco’s Financial District.

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 from weapons of war.
