Barclays & Apartheid


This is a message from my friend (he wasn’t surprised about Barclays).

“Indeed yes. I was on demos years ago urging people to boycott Barclays because it supported apartheid. I also switched my own account from the Midland (now part of HSBC) because they invested in arms exports to unsavoury regimes, to the ethical Coop Bank. Also bank with the Nationwide which resisted efforts by de-mutualisers (“carpetbaggers”) to turn into a normal bank, thus saving it from an eventual fate like other B.S such as Northern Rock! )
