Workers and youth unite against the Tagami Coal-pocalypse!
As the fires burn and the cities flood, one man in Oakland is trying to wreak MORE havoc on the planet’s ecosystem and put MORE toxic chemicals into the lungs of our little ones. That man is Phil Tagami.
Last year, Tagami tried to build a coal transport terminal in our town. But workers, youth, and community members came together to win an historic ban on the storage, transport and handling of coal in city limits. Now Tagami is suing to force the City of Oakland to accept his dirty coal terminal.
Tagami can choose the Coal-pocalypse – covering black and brown communities in coal dust – or an Oakland with good jobs and clean air.
Join youth and workers next Monday, October 30th, to help Tagami make the right choice! We’ll meet at 4:30 at the corner of Mandana Blvd and Carlston Ave* (Oakland) to get in our best Zombie coal-pocalypse costumes and have a procession to Tagami’s house.
This will be a family friendly event with costumes, face-painting, and other Halloween carnival activities, as well as trick-or-treating.
Join Climate Workers on Monday to demand Tagami drop the lawsuit!
*NOTE NEW LOCATION: Meet up at corner of Mandana Blvd. and Carlston Ave., Oakland, CA.
