About 50 students join multi-university call for disinvestment from fossil fuels and investment in renewable resources.

Nearly 50 people participated in a rally and march at the University of California, Davis to call for divestment from the fossil fuel industry and resistance to President Donald Trump’s “rampant climate denial.”

The Fossil Free UC Campaign at noon in front of the Memorial Union on campus was designed to coincide with similar protests at other colleges around the nation.

The UC Davis group marched from the Memorial Union to Mrak Hall on campus to urge UC regents to reinvest in clean energy.

Sarah Risher, a spokeswoman for the group, said it expects to take other actions until UC “is fully divested” from fossil fuels.
