Shame on Citibank & Barclays

Last week we mentioned the two big petitions urging Citibank and Barclays to denounce the Ugandan anti-homosexuality bill.

Latest update:

More than 500,000 people have signed a petition that urges two huge international banks to take a strong stand against Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

In response, the banks did almost nothing: Each published a weak press release late last week.

We happen to think they'd do a damn sight more if the same number of people took their money out of those banks.

If you are against the Kill the Gays Bill and you have an account with either of these banks, change banks and make sure to tell them why.

If you're in the UK, we suggest investing in the Co-operative Bank, which built its reputation on not investing in animal testing, the arms trade or oppressive regimes.

You can also tweet to tell them what you think at: @BarclaysOnline and @Citibank
