Workers and Youth Unite Against the Tagami Coal-pocalypse! As the fires burn and the cities flood, one man in Oakland is trying to wreak more havoc on the planet’s ecosystem and put more toxic chemicals into the lungs of our little ones. That man is Phil Tagami. Let’s gather at his house the day before Halloween.
Will it be trick or treat? Developer Phil Tagami is using legal tricks to force dirty coal on Oakland. Last year, Tagami tried to build a coal transport terminal in our town. But workers, youth, and community members came together to win an historic ban on the storage, transport and handling of coal in city limits. Now Tagami is suing to force the City of Oakland to accept his dirty coal terminal.
Tagami can choose the Coal-pocalypse—covering black and brown communities in coal dust—or an Oakland with good jobs and clean air. Join youth and workers in helping Tagami make the right choice! We’ll meet at 4:30 to get in our best Zombie coal-pocalypse costumes and have a procession to Tagami’s house.
This will be a family-friendly event with costumes, face-painting, pumpkin carving, and other Halloween carnival activities, as well as trick-or-treating.
Volunteers are needed for the day of of the march to help with transportation, security, art distribution, face painting, carnival stations, and other tasks. To volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
