Another divestment win for Fossil Free UK
The divestment movement offers glimmers of hope that when people come together and get organised, we can win victories for justice and climate action. This December:
- nearly 700 institutions worth over $5 trillion have already committed to divest.
- Southwark Council in London has voted to fully divest their £1.2 billion fund - the biggest local government commitment to date.
On 4 May 2017, Hampshire County Council elections will be held. This election is an opportunity to build community support and push Hamphire Pension Fund to divest from fossil fuels.
When you sign up, you’ll receive new resources and top tips on lobbying your local councillors, and invites to local meetings and events in the run-up to the elections.
The next big Global Divestment Mobilisation will take place May 5th-13th, for example. People across the world will be organising events and actions to push for divestment in their communities— find campaigns and start planning here.
