Last Tuesday, the Stop Banking the Bomb crew, the Raging Grannies, and regular people off the downtown bus (literally) made their voices heard with the tenth picket of PNC for investing in nuclear weapons. Inside the shareholders meeting, four members of the campaign questioned PNC CEO William Demchak directly and demanded that PNC sell of these immoral loans in weapons of mass destruction. Demchak told a reporter from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, “It’s not something we’d pull back from. They’re good companies.”
Well, we’ll see about that. The Stop Banking the Bomb campaign will continue in its efforts to get PNC to denuclearize, just as the rest of the world has pronounced that these weapons have no place on earth.
