Not deterred by the rain!

On Wednesday 13 April Hastings Borough Council will vote on a divestment motion drafted by Fossil Free Hastings.

We are currently asking people who support this motion to sign-up to the following statement:

The continued use of fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) poses a serious risk to the stability of the climate upon which our well-being and economy depend. East Sussex County Council currently has £172m of local people’s pensions invested in such fuels.

We agree with Desmond Tutu that ‘It makes no sense to invest in companies that undermine our future’, and urge Hastings Borough Council and East Sussex County Council to divest themselves of their investments in the oil, coal and gas industries.
