London universities’ £7.4m stake in the arms industry

January 28, 2014

The London Student has revealed that, in spite of ethical investment policy claims, London universities have over £7.4 million investing in arms trade company shares.

We can stop this. In 2007-9 Disarm UCL ran a successful campaign to pressure the university into dropping it’s shares in Cobham PLC. Student activism is an essential part of holding universities accountable.
