  • Desmond Tutu intervenes over King's College London's refusal to divest

    Archbishop Tutu in talks with administration at his former university – where vice principal dealing with campaigners spent 30 years working for oil giant BP

    Archbishop Desmond Tutu, one of King’s College London’s (KCL) most revered former students, has intervened after the university rejected a demand from 1,400 staff and students to sell off its fossil fuel investments.

    The university says it supports relationships with fossil fuel companies “as long as they are open about any harm they might do, and that they are taking action to minimise this harm”. The vice principal dealing with the staff and students, Chris Mottershead, spent 30 years working for oil giant BP.

  • Naomi Klein and Bill McKibben call on Paris to divest in Le Monde letter

    The environmental activists have written an open letter to the Mayor of Paris, asking her to make it the first capital in the world to divest from fossil fuels

    Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything, and environmental activist Bill McKibben have written a joint letter in Le Monde to Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, asking her to pull the city’s investments out of fossil fuels.

    The campaign to divest Paris was launched on 350.org, the global climate movement founded by Bill McKibben. It calls upon the mayor to divest the pension fund of the city’s councillors and employees from fossil fuel companies, as well as to commit to not investing its new endowment fund in the same companies.

    People concerned about climate change were so happy to hear the news that the Paris City Council had gone on record as favouring divestment from fossil fuel companies.

    It’s imperative that the city government now agrees to implement this wise recommendation, and ensures that the newly created endowment fund never invests in fossil fuel companies (and refuses their donations), while making sure that the council members’ pension fund divests from the sector.

    Paris will be at the center of the world’s attention. Tens of thousands of citizens will come to push for bold climate action. It has a responsibility to set an example and to go a step further. Paris should clearly use its time in the spotlight to convince other capitals to divest.
