Fossil Free Valdosta, a facebook page just launched by
S.A.V.E. (Students Against Violating the Environment),
under VSU’s new solar canopy:
A student campaign calling on Valdosta State University to freeze
any new investments in the fossil fuel industry immediately and
divest within the next five years.
You can help divestment by
signing their petition.
That will help
VSU stop wasting investments on fossil fuels while solar stocks skyrocket.
And that will help
undermine the political power of the fossil fuel industry.
all our investments are political, and
there’s nothing neutral about investing in climate wreckage.

If business is so good,
why did CCA
lose two contracts for new prisons in Georgia last year
when neither the state nor the feds had enough prisoners to fill them?
And why was
the private prison in Ocilla nearly sold at auction?
Why this year was
Gladiator School closed and two other CCA prisons cancelled?
And all that was before
U.S. DoJ announced today it will “avoid charging certain low-level and nonviolent drug offenders with crimes that carry mandatory minimums”.
