This Association Notes:
That Edinburgh University Invests in TOTAL Oil.
That according to Burma Campaign UK, TOTAL have deployed Burmese army troops to police their pipeline, despite the army’s poor human rights record which includes forced labour, forced relocation, torture and rape.
That according to Burma Campaign UK, TOTAL is the major European funder of the Burmese regime.
This Association Believes:
That TOTAL’s investment in Burma is not acceptable.
That it is not in line with the aims of the university to invest in TOTAL.
This Association Resolves:
To pressure the University to disinvest from TOTAL.
