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.

BREAKING: Fracking has started in Lancashire.
Days after the UN warned we have just 12 years to keep warming to 1.5 degrees, our Government has opened up a new fossil fuel frontier.

"[Oil and gas industry] are trying to subvert the #divestment movement through PR rather than propose a real alternative to #fossilfuels to tackle #climatechange.” -Jessie Amadio, @divestlondon https://t.co/kWYczHbGZf pic.twitter.com/b1TyshZxc4

Shell's $1-$2 billion planned annual investment in renewables is dwarfed by the $25 billion invested in traditional fossil fuels. This company is planning to fail the Paris agreement. Time to change direction Mr Van Beurden! https://t.co/yrFKttIu6z via @telebusiness

With the facts of the #IPCC report laid bare, what is your vision for the *most* effective way to scale up so that our global response to climate change matches the urgency needed? How do we peak emissions by 2020? If your choice isn't shown, pls explain.#1o5C #ClimateEmergency

https://t.co/pVb8htIbVv now going for the banking sector in a big way with a simple message: "1.5°C = No New Fossil Fuels." https://t.co/Yd9hjAQigu
The time for banks to stop financing expansion of the fossil fuel sector is NOW. #FossilBanksNoThanks

There’s one company @blackrock that owns more climate destruction than anyone else on earth. That’s a BIG problem. We just launched a new campaign to hold them accountable https://t.co/gYkdAnaI5i pic.twitter.com/AYH5Ik6sRL

We have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe, new UN report warns today. Fossil fuel companies vehemently disagree, they want to keep digging forever, so we have to take away their sources of finance.https://t.co/VhpTjYYmXY

Two Analyses on two of the world's largest pension / sovereign funds conclude that divesting from fossil fuels years ago would have made them a LOT richer. $38 billion in the case of Norway. $22 billion in the case of New York State. https://t.co/XSYkqhlAKu#DivestNY #divestment https://t.co/fXXgzhFQtM
