In Denmark, 20 responsible municipalities have now divested. That is what this post says, in Danish language.
When will #GeelongCouncil wake up and realise that this is the ONLY responsible thing to do for a local government handling funds that belong to the community?
Melbourne and Sydney have divested. Hobart has divested. More than 30 Australian councils have divested. The Australian Capital Territory has divested.
NOT to divest is to expose ratepayers money to an unnecessary financial risk. What is it Geelong Council is waiting for?
Here is the list of Australian local governments that have divested so far:
Ballina Shire Council Banyule City Council Bass Coast Shire Byron Shire Council City of Albury City of Armadale City of Ballarat City of Fremantle City of Leichhardt City of Lismore City of Marrickville City of Melbourne City of Melville City of Moreland City of Newcastle City of Stirling City of Swan City of Sydney City of Vincent City of Wodonga Gloucester Shire Council Macedon Ranges Shire Council Mount Alexander Shire Council Randwick City Council Richmond Valley Council Shire of Goomalling, Western Australia Town of Bassendean Town of East Fremantle

"Let Labor be the people who rabbit on about emissions and renewable power and saving the planet," he said.”
