Peace Activists Demand End To Blackrock’s War Investment



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Nancy Mancias.

CNN Business reports in glowing terms that Blackrock, the world’s largest asset management company is “the new king of Wall Street.”

The company’s CEO Larry Fink has made a name for himself for encouraging socially responsible investing.

But, a prominent peace group, which has become a shareholder in the company, has done so with the idea of demanding the company divest from all the destructive industries it currently pours money into – most prominently military weapons manufacturing.

Nancy Mancias, campaign organizer for CODEPINK, a doctoral student in Anthropology and Social Change at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
