Things are, unfortunately still very slow with the Divest the OU movement and petition. But there is lots of activity on other divestment fronts. For more information, petitions, bank protests, and the chance to interact with likeminded folk, please do visit and join the campaign facebook group.
Campaigning really works. Petitions really work. Not every time- but often enough to have already prevented many damaging developments. Campaigning has led to banks changing fossil fuel investment policies; conflict palm oil companies being ejected from certification and being dropped by buyers; wildlife protection legislation; animal protection legislation; I believe Michael Gove's conversion to environmental protection may have been down to a campaign just before the last election, and so many more successes. Please use your power- Life on Earth can't afford for you not to.
Many thanks- Simon.
