Phil Tagami, developer of the new Global Logistics Center at the former
Oakland Army Base in West Oakland, promised in 2013 that "CCIG is publicly
on record as having no interest or involvement in the pursuit of
coal-related operations at the former Oakland Army Base.”

Now, in 2015, Tagami is poised to allow four Utah Counties to use public
money to invest $53 million to turn the new Oakland port project into a
massive coal export terminal. If allowed to move forward, millions of tons
of dirty, toxic, climate-killing coal will roll through West Oakland on
mile long trains, creating toxic pollution in a community already
overburdened by heavy industry.

Tagami hopes to close the deal with Utah by June - so NOW is the time to
act! Join us at Frank Ogawa Plaza on May 14th to demand that Tagami keep
his promise and say NO to coal in Oakland!

This action is being organized by Diablo Rising Tide (DiRT) in
collaboration with many allies.
