|Stop WesPac’s Proposed Crude Oil Terminal in Pittsburg
This is the big one! We want a big crowd to support us as we tell the City Council NO to WesPac!
Local organizers prefer that only Pittsburg residents speak. However non-Pittsburg residents are welcome to come and show their support by their presence.
More trains, more asthma and cancer, risks of spills and explosions!
We are fighting a proposed oil terminal near downtown Pittsburg, California. This major industrial project would bring up to 100 rail cars of crude oil through Pittsburg every day.
The massive, 125-acre terminal would be where the old PG&E tanks are now, less than half a mile from downtown Pittsburg, and near homes, schools, parks, and the waterfront. The site lies in both a flood zone and a liquefaction zone (that means that in an earthquake, the soil acts like a liquid and buildings are easily damaged).
The threats to public health, safety, and air and water quality posed by this project are beyond unacceptable.
There is also a Rally at City Hall from 5pm to 7pm before the City Council Meeting! Come out & join in!
