East Sussex County Council (ESCC) has declared a “climate emergency” but continues to invest £145m of local peoples’ pensions in the giant oil and gas companies that are driving our current climate crisis – companies like Exxon and BP.
Divest East Sussex is now launching a nonviolent direct action campaign to put further pressure on the Council to stop funding climate change.
On 25 November we’ll be launching a ‘Deeds not words!’ action pledge for folk who want to take part in the campaign. Join us outside County Hall in Lewes on Monday 25 November (the date of the next East Sussex Pension Committee meeting) for the official launch / photocall: 9 – 10am, County Hall, St Anne’s Cres, BN7 1UE.
If you have a ‘suffragette’ costume (sash, hat etc…) then please come wearing it!
