The proposal to develop a massive crude oil storage and transport facility in Pittsburg is back on the table. The new proposal would exclude the crude-by-rail component and instead rely on pipeline and marine transport. Residents are still opposed. We can support them by attending the next Pittsburg City Council meeting at which they finally stop the project in its tracks or approve a resolution to allocate funds for further environmental review.
Our attendance is welcomed by project opponents. Wear your "Stop WesPac" buttons and t-shirts, or hold placards while sitting. No large signs or banners.
