That special time of the month has come, when all the divest victories are listed in this blog.
From across the globe we’ve taken the sum, and no where near can all of them we log.
The list is unquantifiable and vast, the victories hale from all around.
And this is only from this January past, just think of what new victories now abound.
To make it all easier a bit, we’ve put a few wins into quick tweets.
In 140 characters they’ll fit, but we’re taking down the fossil fuel industry so hold onto your seats!
