Help stop the funding of Climate Change

September 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FIND OUT HOW TO GET INVOLVED IN THE CAMPAIGN TO GET EAST SUSSEX COUNTY COUNCIL TO STOP FUNDING CLIMATE CHANGE (EVENT INCLUDES A SCREENING OF THE SHORT FILM ‘DIVEST’)

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).
