Vast Canadian pension investment in Israeli military-security-prison-complex

A Canadian group, Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade, has produced an extensive report on the Canada Pension Plan’s investments in the Israeli ‘military industrial security complex’. It details 1.5 billion dollars of Canada Pension Plan investment in companies that are somehow linked to Israeli arms industries and is an important resource for Canadians or others working to oppose the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

The report lists dozens of companies around the world that the CPP invests in, and details how these companies are linked to the Israeli military effort and the occupation.

COAT is presently running a petition, open to anyone in the world to sign, asking the CPP to divest from those companies profitting from or supporting the illegal occupation of Palestine.
