On February 13th and 14th, in the run up to crucial climate talks on Paris, we invite you to be part of the global divestment movement. The fossil fuel industry has our political process in shackles with its financial might, but we have the power to hurt them where it hurts.
Divestment is the opposite of an investment, it simply means getting rid of stocks, bonds or investment funds that are unethical or morally ambiguous. This means taking your money away from fossil fuels investments.
Divestment isn’t primarily an economic strategy, but a moral and political one. Just like in the fight to end Apartheid in South Africa, the more we can make climate change a deeply moral issue, the more we will push society towards action.
