Swedish Peace: Stop weapons companies in the city's premises

Swedish radio is reporting on this sensible issue.
Stop renting out Stockholmers’ premises for unethical business. It now requires Svenska Freds, due to a weapons fair in Älvsjö.

At the moment there is a several days long arms fair at Stockholmsmässan in Älvsjö. Among the participants are several weapons companies that manufacture nuclear weapons.

The fair is largely owned by Stockholm City and Svenska Freds now requires a stop for renting out the Stockholmers’ premises for unethical business.

- Based on the criteria that already exist for responsible investments, weapons companies are excluded from the city’s investments. It should be self-evident that, in the same way, excluding large arms companies, says Agnes Hellström, chairman of Svenska Freds.

They now want Stockholm city to quickly develop a policy that stops similar leases.

Charlotte Nilsson, press secretary at the financial council of the City Hall, writes in an email to P4 Stockholm that it is Stockholmsmässan who is responsible for who gets to rent premises, and that all landlords must comply with Swedish law.
