Big day for AXA! The insurance giant’s shareholders are meeting today --
and the media are covering this event very closely on social networks.

With your help, we are going to take over the #Axa hashtag on Twitter so
that the insurer's ties with the war trade are globally exposed and reach
the top tweets.

Can you join us?

Today, AXA is bringing together its investors from around the world for
its annual shareholders' meeting. The insurance giant obviously intends to
avoid “sensitive” issues -- such as its investments in banks that directly
finance war crimes.

But this year is different: due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the meeting
will be held online. A godsend ! Because investors and the media will
follow the discussions and decisions on social networks. It's up to us to
get our message to the top tweets by taking over the hashtag #Axa to
expose the insurer's complicit investments.

AXA must stop making profit on the oppression of Palestinians with its
funding favoring the occupation and the establishment of illegal
settlements in the Palestinian territories.

Israeli colonies!

At a time when all the countries of the European Union, as well as the
international community, are denouncing the urgent need to oppose the new
plans to annex Palestinian land, AXA remains idle about the serious and
direct consequences that its investments have on millions of lives and the
future of an entire country.

What AXA disinvests with one hand, it reinvests with the other. While you
pushed it to put an end to its direct investments in the arms manufacturer
Elbit Systems, and to divest from its subsidiary (AXA EQH) which invests
in the 5 banks directly financing colonization, AXA does not intend to let
go of the juicy vein of war crimes.

Today, AXA has increased its share of direct investments in three of the
banks singled out by the United Nations for financing illegal Israeli

In short, AXA is trying to complicate things, when they are actually very
simple: AXA doesn't care about international laws and human rights and
continues to profit from its investments in the illegal colonization of
the Palestinian territories.

John, we need your people-power to put an end to this

Our major victories are pushing AXA against the wall. On this annual
general meeting day, we must tell AXA's investors that we do not accept
AXA's fool's game: using the Covid crisis to look after its image as a
protective company, but still investing in destruction to look after its

It is unjustifiable that AXA still invests in banks involved in serious
human rights violations.

Our investor mobilization strategy is paying off, and this pressure on AXA
will only bear fruit if thousands of individuals like you join the action

determination - we will not give up until AXA puts an end to all these
investments in illegal colonization!
