Stop Banking the Bomb invites all people of peace to gather to protest and march against PNC's illegal and immoral investments in weapons of mass destruction (WMD). On this day last year, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) goes into full effect of International Law.
PNC Bank has invested over 1.9 billion dollars in seven notorious nuclear weapons manufacturers. This number may be much higher since PNC continues to lie about its investments in WMD. We believe these continued investments are a serious and imminent threat to our planet. We demand PNC Bank sell off these loans, investments, and bond issuances to nuclear arms producers and make a binding commitment never to invest in weapons of mass destruction.
Our campaign is a broad-based coalition of concerned partners, both within the Pittsburgh area and from across the nation.
