Newcastle Council is one of six local authorities that are part of Tyne & Wear Pension Fund. It invests £230m+ in fossil fuels. If you can spare the time, we attend the quarterly meetings at South Shields Town Hall to observe the decision makers who - unlike other pension schemes - will not agree to end this "dirty investment" by 2030. Meeting starts at 9.30am. On this occasion, there will also be a protest afterwards at 12 noon by members of the pension scheme (there are more than 160,000 members, many in this area). Contact Olwyn in Members Chat for more info, and this is the campaign website.
