We will gather near the Richmond BART station for a festival/rally at 11:30am on August 15th, with live music, performance, and food. At 1pm, we will begin marching towards the Chevron oil refinery, where there will be the opportunity to participate in non-violent civil disobedience against the refinery.

This action marks the launch of the Mobilization for Climate Justice whose goal is to empower community-based activists and networks to lead a global movement in confronting the root causes of climate change at home, while defining self-determination pathways for a new energy economy. In the greater Bay Area, the Mobilization for Climate Justice West is organizing a series of demonstrations and educational events to generate “street heat” around climate justice in the lead-up to the international climate change negotiations in Copenhagen in December.
