Green Party of Santa Clara County endorsed 2013-08-06 17:55:49 -0700
The Green Party of Santa Clara County, working in coalition with 350siliconvalley, worked very hard on this event. I was very sorry to see that we were not listed as participants. The Green Party is the only political party that is truly working for a sustainable future, and the mayor of Richmond is a Green who stood up against the might and money of the refineries and WON.

signed No Bay Area Tar Sands Petition 2013-02-11 14:43:35 -0800

No Tar Sands in the Bay Area

Tar Sands are a bad idea.  We can make sure that the Bay Area is not part of this problem. and ensure that area refineries don't process any materials from tar sands mining operations. Help us convince the cities of Richmond and Martinez to prohibit the dirty, destructive and climate-disruptive tar sands within their city limits.

Petition

1,464 signatures

We request that the city councils of Richmond, Hercules, Benicia and Martinez pass city ordinances to prohibit the transport, processing and refining within city limits of any materials obtained or derived from tar sands of any source. We request that all other city councils in the Bay Area pass resolutions in support of these ordinances.
