Take a good long look at what you're investing in

As a member of Amnesty International, I received an information pack highlighting that Barclays, HSBC and RBS are investing in companies that make cluster bombs.

The UK has signed up to an international treaty banning the manufacture and use of cluster bombs.

There is evidence that our major banks are making loans, managing assets and providing funds to cluster bomb manufacturers. Therefore, it is necessary to join in the action to send a message to these banks that we will not stand for this outrage.

I have written to ask chairman of RBS to stop investing in companies that make cluster bombs immediately.
