Sun Sep 12 2010 (Updated 09/13/10) "Stop Texas Oil--Hell No on 23" Theme of Climate Action Protests
Climate Justice Activists Demonstrate Against Proposition 23 Demonstrations against Proposition 23, an oil company sponsored initiative that would delay implementation of California's global warming law, began in earnest this month. In the Bay Area, protesters carrying signs reading "Stop Texas Oil--Hell No on 23" have been demonstrating in San Rafael, Mountain View, Richmond, El Cerrito, Berkeley and Palo Alto. Organizers say this is just the start of a campaign that will include hundreds of such actions statewide before November's election.

Climate justice activists targeted Valero gas stations for their demonstrations after the Texas oil company contributed millions of dollars toward the measure. Proposition 23 would stall a California law enacted in 2006 requiring cuts in greenhouse gas emissions. A workshop for activists against Prop 23 is scheduled as part of a global work party in Oakland on October 10th.
