EF! Drops Banner Next To Richmond Bridge, As Broad Alliance Prepares For August 15th
What: Banner targeting Chevron and the connection of their industry to climate change is hung off island next to Richmond/ San Rafael Bridge, in advance of August 15 Mass March Protest at Chevron Richmond Refinery.
When: Thursday, August13th, 2009 at 4pm.
Where: Red Rock Island, on South side of the Richmond Bridge (close to the Richmond side).
Who: Earth First!, as part coalition of the Mobilization for Climate
Why: As part of an Earth First! revival in the Bay Area, Chevron is being targeted as a false propagandist who tries to promulgate a “Jobs vs. the Environment” controversy, when in fact Chevron is a gross polluter of Richmond and the world. This action is in solidarity with the Mobilization for Climate Justice –West, and in support of August 15thMass Festival, March, and Protest at Chevron Richmond Refinery.
The banner’s large letters say “Hey Chevron: No Jobs on a Dead Planet!”
Members of the Mobilization for Climate Justice are a diverse network of over 25 organizations and concerned community members demanding clean air and appropriate green jobs for Richmond, and climate justice for all. Visit: http://www.west.actforclimatejustice.org/ for more background.
