The Lothian Pensions Trust invests in major arms companies including BAE Systems, whose weapons are used in Saudi Arabia's devastating attacks on Yemen. The UN is investigating 120 allegations of violations of human rights resulting from the bombing there. So why is Edinburgh Council investing for the future with them?
Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre and Campaign Against the Arms Trade have launched a petition to the City of Edinburgh Council to require that Lothian Pensions Trust divest from all arms companies.
