West Coast Oil Invasion

Multinational oil conglomerates aim to expand Los Angeles oil refinery operations with extreme crude oils including the Canadian tar sands, the North Dakota Bakken shale oil, and imports from the Amazon basin and Africa. These refineries put our air, water and neighborhoods at great risk. See how we’re taking action to oppose this here.

The Water Tunnels

As Governor Brown looks to build two tunnels to bring water from the Sacramento delta down to industrial farming in the Central Valley, So Cal would foot the bill without receiving the water, while potentially causing devastation to the San Francisco Bay-Sacramento delta estuaries.
