Alameda County Board of Supervisors to consider an ordinance banning fracking- Thursday, September 4

  • On September 4th, the Transportation and Planning Committee of the Board of Supervisors will meet to discuss fracking. With Chevron gearing up to fight us, we need to make sure our Supervisors see that the community is demanding a ban. Can you join us at the meeting on September 4th at 9:30 AMRSVP here! or below. 
  • Before this meeting, we want all of the Supervisors to hear from their constituents. Can you write a short, hand-written letter to your Supervisor? Because Supervisor Haggerty has been so supportive of a ban, we're asking his constituents to write Thank-You notes. Here are three templates that you can use, and a map so that you can find your district! You can find the address of your Supervisor here.
  • We are working to promote our online petition and Facebook page in preparation for the meeting on September 4th. If you haven't already, sign the petition here and like our Facebook page here.

All Out for Sunday, September 21
Oakland's Lake Merritt Park!

(amphitheater at the Lake Merritt BART end of the Lake)

 

 

This historic NYC protest will lead up to the UN Climate Summit of world leaders. Tragically, more inaction or inadequate action can be expected. We want to show the world that the climate crisis can no longer be ignored, that the planet earth is burning, that massive and unprecedented measures must be undertaken now if humanity’s future is to be assured.

The People’s Climate March is shaping up to be one of the largest climate justice mobilizations in history, with organizers of the march setting a goal of getting a half million people to demonstrate in NYC.

While people all over the country are mobilizing for New York, a multitude of activists will undoubtedly be available to join us in Oakland. Let's make the  Northern California Solidarity action a great success.

 

Bay Area September 21 Coalition: Co-sponsors (Very initial list! Add your organization now!): 350 Bay Area; System Change Not Climate Change; United National Antiwar Coalition; Democratic Socialists East Bay; 

 For all current information and to RSVP, please go to BayAreaSept21.org ...
