A Call for Divestment in Oakland and New York

Oakland marchers 2In Oakland and in New York—and around the world—divestment activists joined thousands of others in the exhilarating People's Climate March, and 350 Bay Area members were there.

In Oakland, the emphasis was on reinvestment in green energy (top two photos). Four thousand people rallied at Lake Merritt to demonstrate their conviction that we must address the dangers of climate change.

In New York, climate justice was front and center, along with a call for a fossil free California (bottom two photos). Marchers started along Central Park West, and 400,000 people joined in one of the largest marches the city has ever seen, leading up to the UN Climate Summit.

Support University of California Divestment

Fossil Free UC students

Students campaign for divestment!

The University of California Regents met in San Francisco September 17 and 18 to vote on investment policies. While they failed to support divestment from fossil fuels, their statement on sustainable investment left the door open to further consideration of divestment. More information is available at the Fossil Free UC website. The university belongs to the public, and it must stop funding the companies that are crippling the planet.
