The Fossil Free UK campaign could not come at a more vital time. The latest research has shown that the fossil fuel industry has 5 times more carbon in their reserves than is safe to burn. Put simply, we need to stop them. The divestment movement has led to great social change around the world, from Apartheid to the tobacco industry. In under a year the Fossil Free movement has already seen 36 institutions abandon their links to dirty fossil fuels including church denominations in US, Australia and New Zealand. It's time for the UK to follow suit, and the Fossil Free tour will explain how we can successfully bring the energy of this movement here.
Be part of a unique and complete experience and find out how you can take action on disinvestment. There is small cost on a sliding-scale donation of between £5 to £20 to cover venue costs. https://www.facebook.com/events/161084620721062/?fref=ts
