Tricked

I’ve been tricked, framed, put on the wrong foot! A couple of days ago I wrote an angry post about the announcement that a new bank would settle in Brussels that would offer its clients to invest in unethical investments. But apparently, there is no such thing as the ACE bank. It was just an advertising trick of Netwerk Vlaanderen (Network Flanders) a non-profit organisation that ‘promotes an environmentally and socially responsible approach to money’. By advertising for this bogus bank, Network Flanders wants to attract attention to the fact that existing banks still invest money on unsuspecting people’s savings accounts into dubious projects and businesses such as the arms trade, environmentally disastrous activities and so on.

Well, they surely fooled me! I thought it was outrageous that something as this could exist. The bank opened their ‘office’, where actors play the roles of the bank staff and try to persuade people to buy antisocial financial products. I think it is a great stunt.

If someone still wants to buy shares in the war in Iraq or Lebanon, you can visit them between 11-14h and 15-18h from Tuesday to Saturday until the 2nd of November. The ‘bank’ is located at the Muntplein / Place de la Monnaie in Brussels.

Capitalist Pigs

I’ve read and article in the newspaper about a new bank that’s coming to Brussels. They advertise for unethical investments. That’s right, ethical investing is for pussies! Invest in pollution, no-one cares about the Kyoto protocol. For people that aren’t afraid of quick decisions, we advise investing in wood from the tropical rain-forests. Don’t wait too long, because those forest are almost gone! Landmines are a growth market too, legs outnumber anti-personnel mines a hundred to one, so buy your shares today! Or how about the lucrative sport brands that let their shoes, footballs and clothing produce by children under 10? You can’t beat the competitiveness of child labour! And this weeks special offer: cluster bombs. The Israeli Air Force and Army have fired every last stockpile into Lebanese territory, so you know they’ll have to buy-buy-buy LOADS of new stuff in the coming months. Now don’t you miss this unique opportunity.

I can’t believe ‘banks’ like this still get a permission to operate. They should be banned, together with their clients.
