Barclays: Banking on Apartheid
PSC, War on Want and CAAT have launched a new campaign targeting Barclays’ banks’ provision of investment, loans, and other financial services to companies supplying Israel with weapons and military technology used to oppress the Palestinian civilian population.
In a report just released by the coalition, they uncovered that Barclays Bank, with high street locations across the UK, holds over £1 billion GBP in shares of 9 companies whose weapons, components, and military technology have been used in Israel’s armed violence against Palestinians. In addition, Barclays provides over £3 billion GBP in loans and underwriting to these companies.
