Oppose attacks on local democracy
This petition had 97 supporters
“We deplore the government’s current attempts to stop local councils
making ethical decisions about investment and procurement. The
proposed new guidelines represent a serious attack on local
democracy and decision making. They will prevent councils from
responding to local public opinion and to campaigns such as those
against violations of international law by Israel, against fossil fuels, the
arms trade and companies practising tax avoidance.
We call on Sheffield City Council to take all legal steps possible to
oppose these new measures, and to reaffirm its commitment to an
ethical basis to its procurement and pensions investment policy.”
