Fossil Free SOAS is a campaign group founded to lobby the university to remove its investments in coal, oil and gas companies. We successfully lobbied the school to commit to divesting from fossil fuels in 2015, and they have subsequently announced that they have done so.
The society now focuses on supporting the 350.org campaign Divest Parliament, and lobbying SOAS' local MP Keir Starmer to support the campaign. The campaign is working to get the Parliamentary pension fund (that all MPs are automatically signed up for when they get elected, worth £600 million) divested out of fossil fuels. So far around 120 MPs have signed - but this excludes Keir Starmer MP.
Fossil Free SOAS is working to change this! We meet on Wednesdays from 13:00-14:00 - check out the SOAS Environmental Movement Facebook page for details.
