Summer Heat Richmond: March, Rally and Nonviolent Direct Action at the Chevron Refinery
The planet has lurched past the ominous milestone of 400 parts per million concentration of CO2. Big Oil continues its irresponsible pursuit of more and dirtier fossil fuels. Local refineries are beginning to import Canadian tar sands for processing in the Bay Area. The moment has come to stand up to the industry that is wrecking our future.
Please join 350.org, 350 Bay Area, the Richmond Progressive Alliance, Communities for a Better Environment, Gathering Tribes, Asian Pacific Environmental Network, Urban Tilth, labor unions, and others for a family-friendly march and spirited rally at the refinery’s main gate.
Saturday, August 3rd:
Gather: Outside Richmond BART station
Time: 10am, Saturday August 3

Shorter March & Kids’ Events: George Carroll (aka Washington) Park, Pt Richmond, 10:30am

No more toxic hazards.
No Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

Yes to a just transition from dirty fossil fuels to union jobs in clean energy!
