Hundreds of Medical students call for fossil fuel divestment

The rally coincided with a letter written to this end signed by over 300 medical students and the AUMSA executive, which was delivered to the Dean of the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, Professor John Fraser. He assured that the students’ call will be conveyed to the School of Medicine Foundation.

“Today we came together to call for a future where our university no longer invests in industries which are driving climate change.” said third-year medical student Julia Kerr.

“As future doctors, we want a healthy future for the communities and patients we will serve. The burning of fossil fuels is a major threat to our nation and planet’s health, so our letter calls on the School of Medicine Foundation to take action by divesting from coal, oil, and gas companies.”
