Today is the day

Dear Osamu,

Today is the day!

It’s the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, and it is jam-packed with action for a nuke-free world. As foreign ministers and heads of state gather in New York to sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons this evening, ICAN campaigners, friends and allies are taking to the streets around the world.

From Amsterdam to Wellington, Berlin to Barcelona, we’re at BNP Paribas’ doorstep with a clear message: it’s time for BNP-Paribas to stop investing in nuclear weapons.

Check out the inspiring actions around the world
We want BNP Paribas to take the first step towards ending their relationships with nuclear weapon producing companies. We know they are investing $8 billion in nuclear weapons producers, trying to make a profit from weapons designed to destroy cities, and we know they can change their ways.

BNP Paribas wants to uphold its image as a bank that cares about having a positive social impact. That’s why they announced last year that they would stop financing companies involved in extracting oil and gas from shale, tar sands and in the Arctic. They also agreed to stop financing the tobacco industry. Now it’s time for BNP Paribas to seize this opportunity to extract themselves from financial relationships with nuclear weapon producers.

Want to help?

Today, governments and citizens alike are stepping up to say that nothing to do with nuclear weapons is acceptable. Together, we can make BNP-Paribas listen and divest.  We hope we can count on your voice to make our message even louder.

Thank you,

Beatrice Fihn and Susi Snyder
