National Day of Action for Ethical Investment at Universities

National Day of Action for Ethical Investment at Universities

Wednesday 27th February
Coordinated actions will take place throughout the day at
universities across the UK. Students will be dressing up as arms
dealers and selling (fake!) university-branded guns to raise
awareness about their Universities' shareholdings in arms companies.

Universities currently taking part include University College London
(UCL), Warwick, Manchester and Newcastle.

Students at all universities are welcome to participate. It just
needs a small group (5+) to set aside an hour or so on the day for
the action and alert the local student press.

There is still time to plan an action for the day! By forming a
united front, students can show they no longer tolerate their
universities' arms trade investments and demand change!

For further information, please contact Andy on

This event is being coordinated with People and Planet.
