George Monbiot throws weight behind campaign

Dear Tim,

Thanks very much for this.

I support the campaign by Edinburgh students to persuade the council to stop investing in BAe Systems and other arms companies. At present, the council's money is being used to underwrite the means by which large numbers of people are killed or mutilated. If I were drawing a council pension I would be extremely unhappy about the idea that my money was being squeezed out of other people's blood.

With my best wishes, George Monbiot
