There will be a general meeting of No Coal in Oakland on Thursday, November 9, 2017 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 December 7, Phil Tagami filed suit 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.
No Coal in Oakland and our allies have vowed to support the City in its fight to keep coal out of Oakland. Our open letter calling on Tagami to drop his lawsuit was published in late October in the East Bay Express and the Oakland Post. 66 organizations and 1,800 individuals had already signed on at press-time, and we’re continuing to collect new signatures.
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.
Come learn about the lawsuit and the status of different facets of our ongoing campaign.
