    Reblogged this on ccl350 and commented:
    Divestment is a moral statement first. It is a way of withholding consent. It doesn’t matter how much or little you divest. It matters that you stand up and be counted.

      Thanks for visiting & re-blogging. That was our experience at Brighthelm. Our oil holding was pretty small, and selling it won’t have caused the chief exec of BP any lost sleep. But it was a moral statement. Also, being an early divestor (the first UK church to divest) has given our action a notoriety, and hopefully an impact, way beyond the size of the action itself. Sometimes the symbolism of what we do is the most powerful thing. Alex Mabbs.
