BlackRock: Divest from Raytheon and all War Profiteers


BlackRock has billions of dollars invested in weapons companies such as Lockheed MartinRaytheon, Northrop Grumman, Elbit, and General Dynamics. BlackRock even has an iShares fund that exclusively profits off of weapons of war. These companies and their weapons will be right at the forefront of any war with Iran, Venezuela or North Korea – as they already are in Yemen.

On May 23 we will say NO to these impending wars and NO to the companies that will make a killing off of them. BlackRock 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.

So join us on May 23 at the BlackRock offices in downtown Boston. We will stand in solidarity with protesters at the BlackRock shareholders meeting in New York City and call for BlackRock to divest from the war profiteers!
