Barclays, HSBC RBS + NatWest $1billion loan to cluster bombs

From Amnesty International:

A recent report finds that UK high street banks are lending or providing investment banking services to cluster bomb producers to the tune of:

– Barclays: US$274 million
– HSBC: US$657 million
– Royal Bank of Scotland (includes NatWest): US$64 million

That could be YOUR cash. And if there’s one thing banks can’t do without, it’s customers: tell your bank to stop this shameful practice once and for all. If you’ re not a customer of these banks you can still contact them to let them know that you find their investment in producers of cluster bombs totally unacceptable.
