Fossil free activists across Scotland have been busy asking election candidates to sign our petition for councils to divest from fossil fuels.

On 4 May new councillors will be elected across the country. They will have the power to get councils out of polluting companies to instead invest the £35 billion local government pension scheme in a way that doesn’t drive climate change.

The following candidates have signed our petition:
