Just to let you know that the spontaneous meeting some students activists had at the CAAT National Gathering back in November has now actually led to a National Day of Action on 27 February around lunchtime. Join us and campaign for ethical investment at your university.
Campaign Against Arms Trade and People and Planet will be helping coordinate a national day of action in protest against university shareholding in arms companies. The event was initiated by activists at University College London and Manchester University.
Student groups there will be joined on the day by others at Warwick and Newcastle University. They plan to get suited up as arms dealers and sell university-branded guns, to raise awareness about their Board of Finance’s shareholding with companies that profit from war. A number of other groups will probably also stage actions. National media networks will report on the day’s events.
Students at all universities are invited to join and participate on the day. It needs only a small group (five or more) to dedicate an hour or so on the day to staging an action, plus any time needed for planning and preparation.
