Chichester Labour Party A fresh voice for Chichester
Chichester Labour made their feelings known on Friday 14 February when members joined with Extinction Rebellion to protest West Sussex County Council’s pension fund fossil-fuel investment policy.
Councillor Kevin Hughes said “Elected representatives cannot expect the public to act on climate change without showing that they are prepared to act themselves. West Sussex County Council councillors have a duty to lead the way by divesting all fossil fuel-based investments from their scheme. In fact, it also makes sense from an investment perspective, as these investments are becoming less attractive over time.’
