Barclays: Banking on Apartheid

Barclays holds £1.3 billion in shares of companies whose weapons, components, and military technology have been used in unlawful violence against Palestinians. In addition, Barclays provides £3.9 billion in loans and underwriting to these companies. Barclays holds investments in Caterpillar, BAE Systems, QinetiQ, General Dynamics and Elbit.

A campaign will shortly be launched - backed by the PSC, War on Want and Campaign Against Arms Trade - to oppose Barclays' complicity in Israel's violation of international law and its war crimes. Details of local actions to follow.

To launch this campaign, join next Tuesday's webinar. Tuesday August 9, 2022 6pm. Details here.
