GM Pension Fund, Stop Funding Climate Genocide
We did it
On 5th February 2021 we successfully raised £835 ( + est. £107.50 Gift Aid ) with 30 supporters in 28 days

We are raising £600 to cover the fees, and would really appreciate anything you can give to help!

As a member of the Fund I find it unconscionable that my money is being used to fund the fossil fuel industry. GMPF have had reports about the impacts and although they have made some very small noises in the right direction, they are way too little, and way too late. Lots of other big organisations have found it quite possible to divest from fossil fuels which shows that it can be done without compromising the future income of their pensioners. As more and more investors move with the times and acknowledge that the fossil fuel industry is a dinosaur the Fund is at risk of holding stranded assets. Well done to the many rebels (and non-XR) who took part in this action, and particularly those brave rebels who took part in the arrestable actions.

Words can't say how much I appreciate your sacrifices to raise the issue of our pension funds investments in fossil fuels - driving pollution and climate change
