New round of campaigning to Disarm UCL

As a new academic year is about to start students and staff at UCL are getting ready for a new round of campaigning to Disarm UCL.

UCL still invests in arms trader Cobham plc. As at 31 August 2007 the
market value of shares held in Cobham PLC was 884 000 Pounds.

We call on UCL to divest from Cobham PLC asap.

The UCL Councils decision to set up a working group to develop an ethical investment policy came as a great success for our campaign at the end of last academic year.

Read the minutes of the Council meeting of 13 June here. You will need a UCL username and password to log in.

Disarm UCL welcomes the establishment of the working group. We will make sure that students and staff get their say on ethical investment of their university, too. Get in touch !

Disarm UCL was a great campaign to be involved in last year. We hope to make it even more fun and more succesful this year. Join us !
