Please join us September 26, 2018 for a demonstration as part of the global
day of action against *BNP Paribas*, a French bank that provides more than
$8 billion in financing to nuclear weapons companies.

BNP Paribas offers services in corporate and investment banking, private
banking and asset management. It operates in 74 countries with almost
200,000 employees and over €2 trillion in assets.

Since January 2014, BNP Paribas has provided more than US$ 8 billion in
financing to nuclear weapon producing companies. In 2017 alone, BNP Paribas
provided around $1.4 billion USD in new loans and other financial services
that support the production and modernization of nuclear weapons.

Demonstrations are scheduled at BNP Paribas location in over 40 countries.
Join us for a demonstration September 26th, from 12:00pm-1:00PM outside of *BNP
Asset Management Offices, 75 State Street, Boston, MA 02109.   *September
26 is the United Nations’ International Day for the Total Elimination of
Nuclear Weapons <http://www.un.org/en/events/nuclearweaponelimination/>.

We are calling on BNP Paribas to stop all investments in nuclear weapons.
On July 7th, 2017 the UN adopted the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear
Weapons. This treaty bans nuclear weapons and all activities related to
them.  BNP Paribas must end all investments in nuclear weapons to keep up
with the changing times. Through coordinated action we have a strong
opportunity to get BNP Paribas to divest from these weapons of Armageddon.
