Birmingham has voted to divest. Will Coventry be next?

Today at the Rise for Climate event in Coventry it was inspiring to see and hear how people are saying a decisive “No!” to the local government’s decision to invest £490 million of pension money in fossil fuels.

So many people were willing to be photographed and videoed demanding action from Coventry council. It is quite clear: Coventry has had enough. It is time for the council to stop investing in fossil fuels and move the money to companies which are serious about achieving the 2.0 degree Paris Agreement by completely rejecting fossil fuel extaction.

To all the people who attended the event, who gave their time to pitch in and help and stand up for positive action on climate change I want to say a huge thank you. Please get in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter or at
