Ethical Banking

Ethical Banking, the practice of choosing financial institutions that implement socially responsible investment policies and business practices [source:].

This month I closed my accounts with Barclays Bank as it has financial ties to weapons companies involved in the genocide/mass murder/ethnic cleansing (delete as appropriate) of Palestinians in Gaza.

Boycotting unethical products and services seems to be the only way to deliver an impact, especially since the Imperial Coalition is intent on playing a geopolitical chess game at the expense of innocent civilians.

Any death of an innocent, whether they be Israeli or Palestinian is abhorrent.

What happened on Oct 7th was repulsive.

What has happened (and is still happening) since then has gone far beyond an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

It is grotesque.

If you have an account with Barclays, and you care about de-escalation and a permanent ceasefire, consider closure.

There are a number of sites that give details of ethical banks. The Good Shopping Guide is one of them. But please do your own research.

Thank you for your time.
