News release issued by the tireless activists of Divest Dal, who won a small victory yesterday. “At Tuesday’s Dalhousie Board of Governors meeting the Dalhousie Board committed to signing onto the United Nations’ Principles of Responsible Investing and to increase investments in renewable energy companies.”
Young people in Halifax crowded into MP Andy Fillmore’s office as part of a widespread sit-in for bold climate action. “Youth are taking action because the recent UN climate report has given the world 12 years to act, and this Liberal government is failing to take adequate steps to prevent climate disaster.
An important victory for the hard working folks of Divest Dal on the road to full divestment at Dalhousie U.
Today’s news release by Divest Dal after the campout and after addressing the Dalhousie board of governors calling on them to revisit fossil fuel divestment.
New contributor and Divest Dal member Laura Cutmore writes on Canada’s longest university campout for fossil fuel divestment, and why Dalhousie can no longer look the other way. Climate, racial, and gender justice are inextricably linked, she writes, and there simply are no more excuses for inaction.
Stephen Thomas, energy coordinator at the Ecology Action Center, read the news about the most recent donation by a fossil-fuel company to Dalhousie University and he took to Facebook to express his displeasure and concern. We asked if we could republish it, and he agreed, although he felt it was pretty unpolished. Sometimes unpolished is fine.
