Divest University Fossil Fuel Holdings

This is a tactic used to end apartheid in South Africa years ago.  Economists differ on its effectiveness, but it certainly brought the problem to the public's attention and it succeeded in ending the white-controlled government in that country.  Now the tactic is being applied at colleges and universities in this country to end investments in fossil fuels, oil drilling, and mountaintop removal coal mining.
