NCIO Community Meeting
January 3, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
There will be a general meeting of No Coal in Oakland on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project (WOEIP).
WOEIP is at 349 Mandela Parkway, around the corner from the West Oakland BART station, 1/2 block south of Fifth St, behind the chain link fence and through the parking lot, on the west side of the street.
On January 10, 2018, there will be a crucial hearing in developer Phil Tagami’s lawsuit against the City of Oakland seeking to overturn the City of Oakland’s ban on storage and handling of coal at the new shipping terminal to be built on public land near the foot of the Bay Bridge. On January 10, Judge Chhabria could decide the lawsuit in favor of the City or in favor of Phil Tagami or order the parties to proceed to trial on January 16.
We are planning a rally at 8:30 a.m. on January 10 outside the courthouse. This meeting will focus on planning for our rally on January 10 and for our presence at the trial starting on January 16.
We meet regularly to plan actions that will strengthen Oakland’s resistance to coal. Only through continued mobilization and a strong alliance with our neighbors in the labor, faith, environmental, social justice, climate justice, racial justice, public health, and business communities can we ensure defeat of the plan to build the coal terminal.
