Lancaster University Student Union ethical investment motion passed

January 6, 2006

Alongside the high profile campaign surrounding the George Fox 6, Lancaster students have been highlighting possible links between Lancaster University’s actions with regards to students protesting at a ‘Corporate Venturing’ conference, the commercialisation of research and the holding of shares in companies including BAE Systems – who attended the conference.

Lancaster University SU has this month passed a motion calling on the University to reveal all its shareholdings, divest shares in arms companies and institute an ethical investment policy.
