A PUSH for Harvard University to divest its massive $36bn endowment of interests in 200 fossil fuel companies is building ahead of two days of civil disobedience scheduled for April.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu is the latest high profile alumni to sign a letter calling on university administrators to divest ahead of climate change talks in Paris later this year.
Alongside Archbishop Tutu’s signature are those of filmmaker Darren Aronofshy, author Susan Faludi, Robert F Kennedy Jnr, actor Natalie Portman as well as a list of internationally distinguished professors and activists.
Harvard students are planning two days of disobedience on campus during April 12-13 to protest the university’s refusal to divest.
