STOP CRUDE OIL BY RAIL SHIPMENTS TO RICHMOND! 

Stop Pollution of our Communities and Climate!

PROTEST AT KINDER MORGAN’S RAIL YARD
520 CASTRO STREET, RICHMOND, CA
           
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued a permit to Kinder Morgan to operate its crude-by-rail project to import highly explosive and toxic crude oil into Richmond, a low income community of color already burdened by pollution caused by the fossil fuel industry. BAAQMD issued the permit without public notice or opportunities for public comment. The number of trains carrying crude oil around the country has risen dramatically due to increased drilling in both the Alberta tar sands in Canada and the Bakken shale oil area of North Dakota, and the number of serious accidents has also increased.
We the people must raise our voices and send a loud and clear message that more pollution from dirty crude oil and tar sands is not acceptable in the bay area or anywhere else. The people demand environmental and climate justice!
