We will be gathering at the Pedestrian/Bike Overpass over I-80 in Berkeley at 11am, June 10th, to use our art and banners to send a message:

We in the San Francisco Bay Area stand in solidarity with communities across the country that have been deemed "sacrifice zones" by the Biden Administration, and demand that the President take immediate action to stop fossil fuel expansion in the United States.

The evidence is clear: the extraction and burning of Fossil Fuels in our neighborhoods must end if we are to stand a chance at curbing the worst impacts of climate change. However, the Biden Administration has recently proven that their campaign promise to scale down fossil fuel infrastructure was nothing but empty words, and approved the massive Conoco-Phillips Willow Project and LNG pipeline in Alaska.

On top of this, they've given handouts to politicians and projects tied to Big Oil and Gas, and sacrificed frontline communities across the country by lending support to the Mountain Valley Pipeline project in Appalachia during debt-ceiling negotiations.

This is inexcusable. Biden has all the political power he needs to end drilling on public lands, place a moratorium on damaging fossil fuel projects, and invest in real solutions to move away from a fossil fuel economy.

Join us to stand with activists and frontline communities across the country!
