I and five more students from Cardiff University urgently need your support: Our University are asking us for over £3,000 for a non-violent protest for fossil fuel divestment on campus! In March, we spray chalked the entrance hall of our university building demanding they remove their  £2m investment in fossil fuel companies.This step was necessary after three years of being ignored despite the support of our Students’ Union and hundreds of students and academics. Only a few days after this action, the Vice-Chancellor met us and within the same month we were vindicated as Cardiff University fully divested.


We are convinced that this was the right time to take a strong stance. Universities inform us about climate science and so should lead the shift away from our reliance on fossil fuels. However, we are seriously concerned that, if we won’t manage to pay the fine in time, our graduation will be delayed and our futures compromised. 


Chip in to support our right to peaceful protest. We should all have that right no matter our financial background. Contribute to our crowdfund and share it with your friends and family!

Just to update you, we managed to pay the university back the full amount! Thank you so much to everyone who donated and supported us this year! Much love to you all.
