CAMBRIDGE MARCH FOR DIVESTMENT 30/04/2016

On April 30th over 250 students, academics, staff and members of the local community marched through the streets of Cambridge, calling on the University to fully divest from the fossil fuel industry. Speakers included Alice Guillaume (Zero Carbon Campaigns Officer), Revd Jeremy Caddick (Dean and Chaplain of Emmanuel College), Oscar Gillespie (local Green Councillor) and Daniel Zeichner (Cambridge Labour MP). Additionally, our petition with over 2100 signatures was handed to the Senate House. Over the past year, the pressure has mounted, and it will continue to do so until our University stops investing in devastation.

This was a huge moment for our campaign – a big thank you to everyone who attended!
