350Marin's First Community Meeting Was a Great Success

Andres_Soto.jpgOver 60 people attended our first Community Meeting featuring Andrés Soto from Richmond.

Andrés gave an informative talk about bomb trains in the East Bay and how we can get involved in actions around the Bay Area.

He talked about the Lac-Mégantic runaway train and derailment in Quebec in July 2013 that killed almost 50 people and turned the town into a toxic waste area, and other bomb train derailments since then.

Here in the Bay Area, the bomb trains would pass through Sacramento, the East Bay and through the Central Valley on their way to refineries in Richmond and San Luis Obispo.

There are actions coming up that you can get involved in:

June 20 - Refinery Corridor Healing Walk #3 - from Benicia to Rodeo

July 11 - March & Rally to Stop Oil Trains in Richmond - March to Kinder Morgan oil train terminal

There was lots of great energy in the room for making this world better for us and future generations. Thanks to all who were there to make it a success.
