It makes no sense to invest in companies that undermine our future “We need an apartheid-style boycott to save the planet” – Desmond Tutu
East Sussex County Council (ESCC) is currently helping to fund climate change by investing £145 million of the East Sussex Pension Fund in the giant oil, coal and gas companies like BP and Exxon.
This event will include a screening of the short film Divest – the story of the first-ever international grassroots campaign to successfully use economic pressure to help bring down a government (apartheid South Africa).
