Join us in SYDNEY to commemorate 5 years of war on Thursday (12th March), 11am at HSBC, a major investor of arms dealer Electro Optic Systems. It's 5 years since the Saudis started to deliberately target Yemeni civilians in airstrikes. Equipment used was from the USA. A Boeing missile destroyed a school bus in 2016 and killed 50 school children. Humanitarian disaster. War crimes.
HSBC loan money to Electro Optic Systems: about $50m to be precise. The UK based bank appears to have no ethical screening. For example, it also funds several coal projects in South Asia. Electro Optic Systems is dealing with the Saudis one of the most problematic governments in the Middle East.
