A dozen climate justice activists gathered in front of the Halifax Convention Centre to greet Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) shareholders for their 2019 Annual general meeting for common shareholders.
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.”
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.
