Clare Bailey voices support for QUB Fossil Free campaign occupation

On hearing the news today, Friday 11 December, that QUB Fossil Free activists are occupying QUB indefinitely as part of their call for the University to divest from fossil fuels, Green Party deputy leader Clare Bailey said,

“The QUB Fossil Free campaign is one of the most admirable campaign from QUB students in a long time.

“The University needs to listen to the demands of the campaign.

“Academic research shows that we need to divest from fossil fuels. If QUB wants their academics to be taken seriously, they themselves must act on their findings.”

Clare Bailey, the Green Party’s candidate for south Belfast added,

“These students are our future leaders; and they are leading the way in the campaign for a better future for all.”
