Totally unethical investment

This is from the excellent 'Save-Kent' site:

"WE ALL KNOW that the oil we use is bad news, but some is fuels is worse than others.

This is about Burma/Myanmar. French oil giant TOTAL Oil is in business with Burma's brutal military dictatorship. Its joint venture in the Yadana gas project in southern Burma earns the military regime hundreds of millions of dollars every year. Find out at the Burma Campaign UK."

TOTAL is one of the companies that KCC like to invest in. As at March 31, 2008 the had £8 million in TOTAL shares. Our campaign against un-ethical investments has has some success and it will be interesting to see whether KCC hang on to theses shares.

As always, I encourage everyone to make their voices heard. Write to the Superannuation Committee at Kent County Council, County Hall, Maidstone, Kent and tell them what you think.
