Oxford Alumni to Hand Back Diplomas After School Defers Divestment

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Alumni and students of Britain's Oxford University are up in arms over the school's deferral of a plea to pull shares of its $3.9 million endowment from fossil fuel companies.

Following the University Council decision on Monday to postpone the matter of divestment to a "future meeting," a number of alumni swiftly claimed occupation of a university administration building to demonstrate their anger over the announcement.

If you don't want your degree, hand it over. Otherwise shove it up your arse, you flash bastards.
