Fossil Fuel Divestment

Students demonstrated with a rally and sit-in at Johnson Hall Feb. 16. Speakers spoke boldly to the scientific and ethical implications of investments in fossil fuel infrastructure, compellingly urging the UO Foundation to divest from the poorly performing investments. Last year students voted overwhelmingly in an ASUO poll for the UO to divest. The University Senate also voted, unanimously last year, urging the UO Foundation to divest from fossil fuels within six months. The Foundation has not acted on the advice of that resolution.

Along with UA President, Michael Dreiling, Naomi Klein spoke at the rally in support of the students. Naomi Klein will address the community tonight at7:30pm EMU Ballroom. For more information, see http://ohc.uoregon.edu/W-16Klein.html
