Mile long toxic coal trains will roll through Oakland unless we persuade the Oakland City Council to stop a plan to ship coal from the old Oakland Army Base. Oakland is not the only affected community. These trains will pass through other Bay Area cities, spewing carbon dioxide and toxic pollutants all along the way.
Join 350 Bay Area, Sierra Club and a coalition of groups to rally for a coal-free Oakland! The rally will be in front of City Hall, where speakers will demand a halt to a dirty coal export project in West Oakland. Also, 350 Bay Area Divestment will table at the rally to get petition signatures and to get the word out about helping to pass California's coal divestment bill, SB 185. After the rally folks are encouraged to go inside to speak against the proposed coal export terminal in Oakland during public comment at the 6pm City Council meeting.
WHAT: Protest the plan to export up to 9 million tons of coal each year through Oakland;
HOW: Join us at a 5 pm rally and at the 6 pm City Council meeting to demand action to stop coal!
