Join other environmental activists from around the Bay Area in a Northern California mass mobilization in advance of the 2015 UN Conference of Parties in Paris (COP21). The demands are familiar but the urgency to act grows with each passing day: End all fracking, tar sands mining and pipelines, offshore drilling, arctic drilling. Stop expansion of the extractive economy. Wind, solar, geothermal power now. No coal exports, no crude-by-rail in Northern California.
10:30 am - Gather at Lake Merritt Amphitheatre (map)
12:00 noon - March
1:00 pm - Rally at Frank Ogawa/Oscar Grant Plaza
