Coal Exports Teach-in

No Coal in Oakland invites you to a teach-in on Oakland coal exports. A broad intersection of Oakland's progressive activists will connect the struggle for environmental justice with struggles across the city for social, racial, and economic justice.

Speakers represent Oakland Citywide Network (Oakland's anti-displacement coalition), Black Lives Matter, and Fight for 15.

For the last six months we have been hard at work fighting the influence of private developers and coal companies at Oakland City Hall. These special interests want to export millions of tons of coal through Bay Area communities for shipment overseas from a new terminal on the Oakland waterfront.

The Oakland City Council has the power to block the dirty coal deal. They set December 8th as a deadline for themselves to take action on this—tthough action may now be delayed until February.  Learn more at http://tinyurl.com/OaklandCoalInfo/.
