In the fight against climate change Divest WMPF are screening Powertrip: Fracking in the UK, a powerful film that takes you to the frontline of resistance against fracking. The screening is part of a drive to build support in Coventry for the work of Divest WMPF.
Birmingham City Council recently voted unanimously to pull its Pension Fund money out of fossil fuels, thanks to the persuasive power of this campaign group . The goal now is to build support across the West Midlands and get all six other local authorities to follow suit. If this goal is reached then £490 million of West Midlands Pension Fund money will be divested away from fossil fuels and into local renewable energy schemes, adding to the figure of $6 trillion which has already been divested by institutions across the globe.
Come to the free event, meet the team and join a campaign which is delivering rapid, global progress by striking at the heart of the financial beast!
