Last year, developer Phil Tagami tried to build a coal transport terminal in Oakland. But workers, youth, and community members came together to win an historic ban on coal. Now Tagami is suing in Federal Court to try to force the City of Oakland to accept his dirty coal terminal. We’re fighting back.
Last month, two hundred of us went to Phil Tagami’s house in the hills. This month, we go to Tagami’s Rotunda Building in downtown to launch a boycott of his swanky event space. Every dollar spent at the Rotunda Building is a dollar that Phil Tagami can use to force toxic coal dust on working-class black and brown communities in Oakland.
Join us at the Oakland Rotunda Building to put Tagami on notice that any events booked from this date forward until the day Tagami drops his lawsuit should expect picket lines.
After a raucous practice picket, we’ll enjoy a community meal prepared by the youth of Abundant Beginnings—a reminder that we can hold celebrations in community, not just in the decadent digs of developers. Please note: This is is not a “Thanksgiving” meal. We reject the genocidal roots of Thanksgiving and stand with Indigenous peoples fighting for land, water, air, and sovereignty.
Join us for an art party to support the action on Saturday, November 18th from 2-4 PM. Location TBA.
