15/11/2022: Advertising screen at Department of Engineering shattered

The Department of Engineering's iconic advertising screen has been shattered.

HIT REPORT. Environmental activists have shattered the iconic advertising screen at the University of Cambridge’s Engineering Department on Fen Causeway. The group took this action to protest and highlight the department’s strong links to fossil fuel companies while the University pretends to advocate for climate action at COP27. The activists spray-painted “THIS IS NOT A DRILL” underneath the screen.

The Engineering Department is a hotbed of fossil fuel funding and research:

This is the first known direct action taken against the department for its fossil fuel connections. We predict it won’t be the last.
