Brilliant news! On Monday 8th July , at full council, Dudley MBC will debate a fossil fuel divestment motion.
The motion raised by Labour’s Councillor Pete Lowe is the second to be raised in the West Midlands. In 2017 Birmingham City Council unanimously passed a motion calling on West Midlands Pension Fund to divest from Oil, Coal and Gas exploration and extraction companies.
The motion has been on the agenda for the last two full council meetings but due to time pressures has yet to be debated. We hope it will be discussed at this meeting and need to let Dudley councillors know that Dudley backs the motion.
Please spread the word and let your councillor know you support the motion.
We need your help to make this a success ( see ‘Lobby your councillor’ )
