A Valentine message for the Greater Manchester Pension Fund

event report

Here’s a copy of the Valentine message that Fossil Free Greater Manchester sent to the Greater Manchester Pension Fund following our #showthelove action in Exchange Square on Saturday 13th February.

Dear GMPF Management Panel,

We know that the decision to break up from a long-term relationship is a hard one.

But deep down, you must know that things aren’t working out with fossil fuels.

More and more people are saying that they just aren’t right for you.

They’re already costing you huge amounts of money – £148 million over 18 months on coal alone [1] – and the future isn’t looking rosy.

Relationships with other stocks can be just as rewarding, but without damaging the health and prosperity of those you care about most.

Will you #showthelove for your members this Valentine’s Day by dumping fossil fuels?

With love from,

The Fossil Free Greater Manchester team and the
thousands who’ve signed our divestment petition

P.S. Please take a moment to watch this video we’ve made for you with messages from members of the public we spoke to on Saturday:
