Use your vote: make the Union disarm UCL!

Please come to the UCL Union's Annual General Meeting between 4-6pm on Thursday 8 February at Cruciform Lecture Theatre 1, Cruciform Building, Gower Street to vote for UCL Union to oppose UCL's investments in arms companies.

We have submitted a motion to the union regarding UCLs ethical investment policy regarding the arms trade and calling on the union to oopppose UCLs investment in arms shares and to actively campaign for them to disinvest.

The full text can be seen here:
AGM Motion on Ethical Investment

We need to get as many people as possible along to the AGM so we can vote for this motion to be passed. The importance of this cannot be understated: the union holds a lot of sway with UCL because it represents the interests of all UCL students and as such can influence a lot of people. If the union passses the motion it will seriously help our campaign. We are also due to meet with Provost Malcolm Grant soon to discuss the shares so again Union backing would be very helpful.

Please come along on Thursday (remember to bring your ID and session cards) and bring as many people as you can!!!
