Kinder-Morgan Action



This coming Saturday, May 31st! Arrive at BART at 12 - 12:30 or meet at Kinder Morgan at 1 pm

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District 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 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 (See link to exploding train bombs below). 

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. KEEP THE OIL IN THE SOIL!!

Must Watch: Rachel Maddow Reports on Kinder Morgan Oil Spill, Pipelines and Crude-By-Rail Bomb Trains //  Incredible footage and reporting (watch around 12:00 minutes in): 

See you there! Bring water! Hats/visors/bumbershoots: (there's no shade!)   Bring signs and banners! 

If you wish to drive directly to Kinder Morgan, the entrance is on Castro Street between the entrance to the Chevron Refinery / Hwy 580 & Hensley Street, close to Hensley (across Castro Street from General Chemical’s entrance at 525 Castro Street.)(Closest parking is up Hensley Street.)

A "carpool convoy"/bike-in is being coordinated for those who wish to come by BART or on bikes:
BART arrival times in Pt. Richmond are:

Freemont trains:
11:56 am
12:16 pm
and from Daly City (thru SF):
12:06 pm
12:26 pm

We need carpool drivers to arrive at the BART station and pick up riders and hopefully some signs, banners, to hang out car windows and off bikes, etc.
Leave BART in a convoy (all together!) at 12:30 to arrive at Kinder Morgan driveway by 1 pm (4 mile drive/ride).
