Repost from ForestEthics
ForestEthics has set up an easy online petition directed to the Sacramento City Council, asking for their support in opposing Valero Benicia’s Crude By Rail project. Sign below, add a personal comment if you wish, and click on ADD YOUR NAME. Thanks!Don’t let Sacramento be the site of the next oil train disaster. Right now, oil giant Valero is fighting to build a rail terminal at its refinery in Benicia to receive trains carrying highly toxic and explosive crude oil. If approved, mile-long oil trains will roll through Sacramento every day en route to the Valero refinery. We’re urging our elected officials in Sacramento to oppose this project but, we need your help. Add your name to the petition now! This is a crucial moment in the multi-year long fight to StopOilTrains in Benicia. They’ll soon be deciding whether or not to approve this dangerous project, and the Sacramento City Council must do everything in their power to protect our community. Let’s make sure Benicia’s leaders know that Sacramento is watching. Benicia decision makers need to hear from Sacramento residents and elected officials before a decision is made that will impact all of us. That’s why we must make sure the Sacramento City Council passes a resolution opposing this project. Add your name to the petition now and we’ll demand they stop Valero from putting Sacramento’s health and safety at risk.
