No Tar Sands

kxl-composite.jpgThe No Tar Sands team invites you join the Sunflower Alliance's fight to stop Big Oil in the Bay Area.

In the fall of 2013 the No Tar Sands Team recognized that an effective way to fight tar sands extraction in Canada was to fight its importation and refining in Bay Area refineries.  To this end we became part of the emerging Sunflower Alliance.

The Sunflower Alliance brings together individuals and organizations committed to environmental justice and the health and safety of all Bay Area communities threatened by toxic pollution and climate change.

We can prevent runaway climate change right here at home by resisting Big Oil's local expansion, the proposed mega-storage terminals, distribution hubs and "modernization" projects for the processing of dirtier crude.  Communities in Pittsburg, Benicia, Pinole, Crockett, Rodeo and Martinez are uniting in opposition to these projects, and leading the effort to stop crude-by-rail.  In Oakland there is growing resistance to a threatened use of the port, army base and rail lines to transport dangerous crude oil, petroleum and coke.

Please join us to stop Big Oil’s assault on the health of our planet. The children of today will thank you for standing up for their future.
