Tell Gov Walz to Stop Funding Border Walls!

The MN State Board of Investments, which Gov. Walz chairs, holds $1.2 million in shares in Elbit Systems. Elbit Systems is Israel’s largest weapons company, and is currently under contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to build a 53-tower “Integrated Fixed Towers” security project on the US-Mexico border. Continuing to invest in Elbit Systems perpetuates a system of militarization of the border and the resulting deaths of migrants trying to cross.

Elbit Systems’ border militarization technology was also deployed against the Palestinian people. 95% of their sales come from weapons alone. They are currently the world’s leading exporter of military and surveillance drones. Elbit also makes cluster munitions and white phosphorus shells – both of which are banned under international law.

Join us to tell Gov. Walz Elbit Systems should be disqualified as a candidate for the investment of retirement funds for the State of Minnesota. #BDS #MNDivestfromElbit
