ANSWER-NYC is organizing a solidarity demonstration with the Stop Banking the Bomb campaign that was started in September demanding that PNC Bank end its $1.2 billion investment in eight nuclear weapons manufacturers. The campaign is also organizing a protest at the bank's headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The coalition was started by activists from the Pittsburgh chapter of Veterans For Peace, Party for Socialism and Liberation-Pittsburgh Branch, Pittsburgh Anti-Imperialist League and the Thomas Merton Center’s Anti-War Committee.
The campaign states: "We believe these continued investments are a serious 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."
