Subject: Let's take our energy to the streets & Stand with Standing Rock!
Climate action just took on a whole new level of urgency. It's up to us, the people. The future of the planet rests in our hands. Social justice victories from civil rights to women's rights were achieved because powerful mass movements led the way.
The indigenous-led movement to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline is one such movement which is at a critical moment. Please join us on the national day of action to fight this dirty money pipeline on November 15th. Our goal is to have 3,000 people in the streets! Click here to see Bill McKibben talk (at ~24:00) in Marin recently about how important the NoDAPL/Standing Rock movement is.
The events & actions listed below are what's happening right now in the Bay Area to keep us as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius warming:
- Bay Area Stands with Standing Rock: National Day of Action
- Marin Stands with Standing Rock
- Stop Rising Refinery Pollution
Bay Area Stands with Standing Rock: National Day of Action
Tuesday, Nov 15 6:30am-12noon
Marin Stands with Standing Rock
Tuesday, Nov 15 4:30-6:30pm
If you live in Marin County, you can demonstrate in solidarity in SF & Marin. You can drop by after work. In Marin the rallies will be in the evening in two locations, one in downtown San Rafael where Citibank is located, as they are the bank coordinating the financing of the Dakota Access Pipeline, and one in Novato at a soon to be determined location (go back to the link below to find out where).
Stop Rising Refinery Pollution
Wednesday, Nov 16 9:30am-12:30pm
At a time when we urgently need to stop new fossil fuel infrastructure projects, the biggest industrial polluters in the Bay Area, the oil refineries, are getting permits from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD or Air District) for dirty oil infrastructure projects as if there were no tomorrow. For four years, staff promised and failed to put a cap refinery emissions in it's Rule 12-16 proposal. Now they are refusing to share their legal justifications for opposing caps, and continue to cause delays, while supporting industry arguments. BAAQMD Stationary Source Committee Chair John Goia says that public presence in Board meetings is essential in order to show support for the community's proposal. So please join us at the important meeting.
