Saturday, February 14, 5:00 PM Hamilton Garden Arts Festival - English Rose GardenHamilton, 3216, New ZealandYou'll be able to see the exact address and contact the event host after you RSVP.
Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival 2015 is pleased to host Placards & Picnics as part of the global movement that is Fossil Free Divestment Day. The fossil fuel divestment movement is growing faster than any previous divestment campaign in history. It is sparking international action in financial centres, parliaments, churches, universities, municipalities and investment banks around the world. Most importantly, it’s shining a light upon the fossil fuel industry’s damaging plans to profit from the planet’s wreckage.
Join us with your Picnic and Placards to call on our institutional leaders to immediately freeze any new investment in fossil fuel companies, and divest from direct ownership and any commingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years. Guest Speakers – Jeanette Fitzsimmons and others. Go Orange with your Getup. Proudly supported by the Waikato Environment Centre and Anglican Action.
