Edinburgh students criticise Total link

From BBC News online:

Students have voted in favour of a motion calling on the University of Edinburgh to withdraw its investments in an oil company with links to Burma.

The university owns 16,640 shares in Total, which account for less than half of one per cent of its investment fund.

The motion was passed by 360 votes to three at the student AGM. They hope it will put pressure on the university to end its involvement with the firm.
