Join No Coal in Oakland in a massive rally on Saturday, June 25th, 2 days before the council vote on coal.
On June 27, the Oakland City Council will finally decide what to do about coal. Will the City Council ban coal or will it sentence us to a 66-year-long compromise with the developer that would allow the development of, by far, the largest coal export terminal on the West Coast and bring huge amounts of coal trains through the Bay Area to Oakland.
Although public opposition is great, powerful forces are working behind the scenes to make the coal deal a reality. Gov. Jerry Brown has remained silent while his friend and business partner Phil Tagami plots to ship millions of tons of coal through Oakland to be burned overseas. It’s time for the greedy one percent to back off on this scheme that endangers the health and safety of people in Oakland and many along the train lines coming into Oakland and and would add to climate change throughout the world. We can stop them but only if we let the City Council know that we will stand for nothing less than a ban on coal.
JOIN NO COAL IN OAKLAND ON SATURDAY, JUNE 25, FOR A LARGE RALLY AT CITY HALL STARTING AT 1 P.M.
