BNP Paribas' plans to finance a dangerously obsolete nuclear reactor in Angra, Brazil took centre court at the end of the Paris Masters tennis final between Robin Soderling and Gael Monfils. Four Brazilian activists danced the samba onto the court wearing sashes that called on BNP Paribas to stop its radioactive investments.
The banking group is playing with Brazilian safety by considering funding the Angra 3 reactor, which meets no international safety standards and would never be built in Europe. Financing Angra 3 would be a clear misuse of BNP customers’ money and the public should demand that the bank uses that money to endorse a race to a safe renewable energy future rather than endorsing an obsolete, dirty and dangerous energy source.

If BNP Paribas goes ahead with financing the Angra 3 reactor - it will burden the Brazilian people and environment with a dangerously obsolete reactor.
Tell BNP Paribas not to fund the dangerous, out-of-date Angra 3 nuclear reactor:
Tell BNP Paribas to stop radioactive investments!
