Phil Tagami, developer of the new Global Logistics Center at the former Oakland Army Base in West Oakland, promised in 2013 that "CCIG is publicly on record as having no interest or involvement in the pursuit of coal-related operations at the former Oakland Army Base.”
Now, in 2015, Tagami is poised to allow four Utah Counties to use public money to invest $53 million to turn the new Oakland port project into a massive coal export terminal. If allowed to move forward, millions of tons of dirty, toxic, climate-killing coal will roll through West Oakland on mile long trains, creating toxic pollution in a community already overburdened by heavy industry.
Tagami hopes to close the deal with Utah by June - so NOW is the time to act! Join us at Frank Ogawa Plaza on May 14th to demand that Tagami keep his promise and say NO to coal in Oakland!
This action is being organized by Diablo Rising Tide (DiRT) in collaboration with many allies.
