Stop Oil Trains – July 11 Action
Saturday, July 11 from 9:30-10:45 a.m.
There is NO safe way to transport extreme tar sands and Bakken crude. Two years after Lac-Mégantic, oil trains keep exploding and carbon pollution keeps rising. Oil trains are a disaster for our health, our safety, and our climate. Join with other Californians on July 11 to remember the 47 who perished in the Lac-Mégantic accident and take action to stop oil trains.
One oil train per week passes through Davis currently. Two more 100-car trains a day are planned for the near future…unless we stop them. Join us!
Davis Vigil and Rally:
9:30 a.m. Meet at the Davis Train Station wearing a fiery red, yellow, or orange shirt. Bring your own sign or carry one of ours.
Walk through our downtown Blast Zone to the Farmers’ Market at Central Park.
10:00 a.m. Gather for a brief Rally at the Rotary Stage (by the carousel) featuring:
- Rousing songs by the Raging Grannies
- Mayor Dan Wolk – Davis Resolution against Oil Trains through town
- Councilman Lucas Frerichs – SACOG letter
- Senator Lois Wolk – recent CA legislation addressing oil trains
- Supervisor Jim Provenza – waste water injection & fracking in Yolo County
- Damien Luzzo – proposal to ban fracking in Yolo County
- Leave the crude in the ground!
PR: Big photo op with our own oil tank car!
For questions or to volunteer: email@example.com
Want more action? Take the 11:20 a.m. Yolo bus or carpool to downtown Sacramento. Join a mile-long Vigil to stop oil trains lining the streets from the railroad station on 5th & I to the Capitol on 10th & L. Bring signs and wear fiery colors! www.350sacramento.org
