Divest Scotland Tour: Edinburgh

Coal, oil and gas are causing global climate change, and drilling and mining for these fuels is polluting and destroying whole communities.
We want to move our money away from these fossil fuels to make a break with this broken system and support a healthy planet.
On the Divest Scotland tour we'll hear first-hand accounts from people in the Global South who have been driven to fight UK fossil fuel companies.

Scotland to join global call for climate action

Scots are being urged to join hundreds of thousands of people around the world in marching for action on climate change on Saturday 28 November.
Scotland’s Climate March is expected to bring thousands of people onto the streets of central Edinburgh, sending a message to world leaders attending the UN climate summit in Paris (30 Nov to 11 Dec).
