South Yorkshire Fossil Free – divest now!
Let’s get the oil, coal and gas out of our Pensions, Universities and Churches, before this bubble bursts…
South Yorkshire Fossil Free! (SYFF!) lobbies local public bodies such as South Yorkshire Pension Fund and local councils, to assess the risk of their carbon-based investments and to make a plan to divest. We support members of the pension fund in raising the issue with the fund or with their union. We meet regularly and would welcome new members to our group. To find up-to-date events and news from the South Yorkshire Fossil Free team (previously known as the Divestment group for Sheffield Climate Alliance), click on the link here to access their Facebook page.
Following the recently declared climate emergency by the national government and Sheffield City Council, we are currently urging people to write to their local Councillors using the template letter here. Please feel free to personalise the letter and please forward any responses to email@example.com
