Your Daily GAG: The Implications of Targeting BlackRock
James Militzer's piece "Weekly Roundup: The Death of a Salesman, a Megaphone for Mom, and a Target on BlackRock" summarizes our #dropthegunstocks demand. It also addresses BlackRock's (“BR”) insufficient response that was included in the Fortune Magazine article to our demand:
BR argues that it is required to manage gun stocks/ funds.
Read: our hands are tied.
BR also argues that they are socially responsible as their actively managed portfolios which exclude firearms among other things shows this.
Read: don't look at that the dirt under the rug.
Militzer ends with several provocative questions connected to broadening the divestment front.
Our reply: It's time the curtain was pulled back on the lesser known key players who are equally complicit in gun violence and, by extension, conduits for death.
GAG is watching.
