The #fossilfuel #divestment movement has spread fast across the world and keeps on doing. It’s something like an ocean wave.
On this page I’ll try to collect the most recent news on the topic that I see on Twitter and that come from #divestpeople living on our planet.
Mostly: commitments to divest, calls on to divest, divestment data, articles about divestment, divest mob or other kinds of grass-roots initiatives gathering people.
If you hear of any, please tweet me. Tks in advance.

Over 11,000 members have called on @UniSuperNews to divest from dirty fossil fuels. But the fund continues to invest billions in companies expanding the coal, oil and gas sectors driving the #ClimateCrisis.

To become net-zero, it has urgent work to do this year to set fossil fuel phase-out targets.

Every year @RAN offers the most careful accounting of the planet's most irresponsible players. This year again @Chase leads the pack–since Paris it's handed the fossil fuel industry more than a 1/4 trillion dollars. They are arsonistshttps://t.co/443rVdljec

Billions will be pulled not only from coal, but from other corporations profitting from clomate-wrecking oil and gas, too. https://t.co/RTIgPRntB7

The government uses our money to fund fossil fuel projects all around the world, making the #climateemergency even worse. This has to stop. Please join me and sign this petition. https://t.co/HPrjbuF74e

Our investment portfolio in the United Kingdom is 100% fossil-free. The sisters made the decision to divest in 2018 and were fully divested in 2019.#divestment #LaudatoSi@OfReligious @NottsDiocesehttps://t.co/jg7zbU6bID pic.twitter.com/GbLF6nbV7t

Great to see progress across cultural institutions in #London in moving away from #fossilfuels. Investing in fossil fuels is investing in the #climateemergency – exactly why #divestment and #divestinvest is so important https://t.co/33yMlzZgLB

Another university divests! Every day, a new commitment as trustees and managers realize there is no future in fossil fuels.

Our latest article about #fossilfuels #divestment published by @actares_news – a summary about the collaboration with @YAllegri and @Coeje that made @EPFL #divest and as @Carokuy announced last Tuesday, #impactinvestment could become the next chapter! https://t.co/QiztnWDokr

Since @ShareAction announced the planned #Barclays resolution in January, others, inc Europe’s biggest asset manager, @Amundi_ENG have signalled support. 1st time a European bank has faced such shareholder action on #FossilFuel financing https://t.co/AIkvPotG75 #ClimateAction
