Florent Compain ./. BNP Paribas

Florent Compain saß bis 11. April in Haft wegen einer Stuhlbesetzung bei der kolonialen Bank BNP Paribas, einer Aktion mit über hundert Repräsentant*innen verschiedenster u.a. indigener Organisationen, die ihr Mitspracherecht bei Finanzfragen durchsetzen wollten und auf die Erkenntnisse aus den Panama-Papieren zur Steuerhinterziehung bei BNP Paribas aufmerksam machten.

“We accuse BNP Paribas of disregarding the people’s rights to a healthy environment and to decide for themselves on their living conditions, through its funding of companies known for misconduct against those who protest their activities (Glencore, BHP Billiton, Anglo American, etc.) or projects such as the Dakota Access Pipeline in the US, currently being fought by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
Because the next 5 to 10 years will be crucial in stabilizing the climate, the money currently hidden in tax havens and used to finance the world’s most polluting companies should be urgently redirected towards an ecological and social transition to help us tackle the climate challenge.”

“This has been an important and strong day for the climate justice movement in France”, said the activist. “We went to the bank´s
headquarters in Paris and also in Ban Le Duc where the trial was taking place and we showed the strength of the climate justice movement”, she said in the phone interview with Real World Radio.
“We managed to put BNP-Paribas on trial. This was not a trial against the Chair of Friends of the Earth France”, said the French activist. As an example, she stated that BNP-Paribas is financing several fracking projects to obtain non-conventional hydrocarbons in the US, which violates human rights. radiomundoreal

Because the next 5 to 10 years will be crucial in stabilizing the climate, the money currently hidden in tax havens and used to finance the world’s most polluting companies should be immediately redirected to fund an ecological and social transition to help us tackle the climate challenge.

Powerful multinational companies responsible for the tax evasion system, the destruction of the environment and living conditions of people around the globe should be prosecuted, not “Faucheurs de Chaises” activists, whistleblowers and environmental activists. BNP Paribas is the one that belongs in the dock. foei
