As we have done for some years in BBVA sin armas, Banco Santander sin armas and CaixaBank sin armas campaigns, under Banca Armada campaign, this year we want to return to participate in the BBVA, Banco Santander and CaixaBank's General Shareholders Meetings that to be held next March 14, March 28 and April, respectively.
Our aim is, as always, report to the media and all the shareholders that will be there, the BBVA, Banco Santander and CaixaBank investments that violate human rights and promote armed violence.
We ask for your help by transferring your shares to the person representing the campaign.
The recent capital transactions in Hispasat and Indra demonstrate the interest of financial institutions and the favorable treatment they receive from the state.
Financial institutions have a key role in the economic cycle. Without them, the production, distribution and acquisition of goods and services can not be developed. This rule also serves to military enterprises that need the participation of banks, sometimes as their financial transactions, sometimes as part of its own capital.
Banks have been much talked-about since the beginning of the crisis, which has been created in large part by them. Banks and savings anks have emerged as one of the institutions that generate less sympathy among the people. Also, for the first time, politicians have been made visible as co-responsibles for what is happening. However, we had to feel the pain in our flesh to react in a majority. A lot of scams and corruption make us wary of both, a bank as a politician. Starting with the preference shares, up to unfair terms of mortgage loans, through billionaires salaries of their chiefs, and the accounting distortions to show that there were benefits where you could only see black holes. Not to mention how the Banks have led us by the hand down to extreme consumerism, through aggressive promotions, fake promises and attractive ads. Nevertheless, we can not forget the individual responsibility of everyone who has been deceived.
