Oakland "No Coal" Teach-In
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
No Coal in Oakland has spent the last six months fighting the influence of private developers and coal companies at Oakland City Hall. These special interests want to export millions of tons of coal through Bay Area communities for shipment overseas from a new terminal on the Oakland waterfront.
Their plan is to use public land and hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to enrich a handful of private individuals—while worsening our air quality, adding to the global climate crisis, and putting the health and safety of Oakland workers at risk. Their game has been to make an end run around environmental review and turn Oakland into the biggest West Coast coal port in a 21st century “coal rush.”
The Oakland City Council has the power to block the dirty coal deal. They set December 8th as a deadline for themselves to take action on this—though action may now be delayed until February.
Join us for a teach-in on December 8th with speakers from Oakland Citywide Network (Oakland’s anti-displacement coalition), Black Lives Matter, and Fight for 15. A broad intersection of Oakland’s progressive activists will connect the struggle for environmental justice with struggles across the city for social, racial, and economic justice.
