UCL (University College London) currently holds shares in arms companies Cobham plc and the Smiths Group (both of which manufacture components for military aircraft and other weapons systems). UCL has shares worth c. 1.5 million pounds in these companies. They constitute only 1.7% of UCL's total invesments. UCL students, staff and the UCL Union have already put the pressure on Provost Malcolm Grant to sell these shares and for UCL to adopt an ethical investment policy, which bans investment in arms companies. Now is the time to get UCL alumni more actively involved in the Disarm UCL campaign. Come and help us make a difference by writing a letter to the provost.
