Don't Bank on the Bomb - Stop Funding the End of the World

 

Our friends at Don't Bank on the Bomb Scotland have created a guide which is a resource for those who want to get involved in the divestment movement in Scotland. The aim of the movement is to persuade Scottish companies and organisations to stop providing financial support in the form of loans and investments to companies who are involved in the production of nuclear weapons, which will in turn pressurise these companies to halt production.

Trident Shambles
