Speak out against toxic crude project at Board of Supervisors meeting

Phillips66-project-map.jpgThis Tuesday is our best chance to stop the expansion of the Phillips 66 refinery in Rodeo, linked to a refinery in San Luis Obispo County. Join us to protect northern and central California communities from increases in transport and processing of highly toxic and explosive crude oil. See map on right, showing the route that bomb trains would take in this 2-refinery project, were it approved.

Please review the 10 talking points and come to Martinez to make a public  comment at the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors meeting.

The supervisors can issue a land-use permit for the Phillips 66 oil refinery expansion in Rodeo. We need to prevent that.

If the supervisors approve a land-use permit on Tuesday, Phillips 66 will bring in much more dirty tar sands and explosive Bakken crude oil, and they will store and export massive amounts of propane and butane. Phillips 66 doesn’t care that the residents of Rodeo, Crockett, and every community along the rail lines will be exposed to increased toxic emissions and safety risks.

We need a big showing at this hearing. Your public comment is very powerful and one of the best ways to put on record how our community demands safety, clean air and water, and the right to live without fear of explosion and immense environmental pollution.
