Join us on Monday, May 6 to protest Exxon Mobil’s application to truck crude oil 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – up to 70 trucks a day! – along dangerous coastal highways through Santa Barbara County, including on stolen Chumash land.
What: Protest Exxon’s application to truck offshore oil
When: 5 – 8PM, Monday May 6
Where: Santa Barbara County Administration Building, Board of Supervisors Hearing Room, Fourth Floor, 105 E. Anapamu Street, Santa Barbara
If Exxon gets its way, it would restart drilling from its three offshore oil platforms in the Santa Barbara Channel, all of which have been shut down since the 2015 Plains All American Pipeline oil spill.
Californians shouldn’t have to choose between coastal oil pipelines and oil tanker trucks; both directly threaten our marine environment, coastal community and climate.
We’ll gather at 5pm for a rally before heading into the public hearing, where there will be opportunity to give public comment. We’ll let the Planning Commission know that Santa Barbara does not want Exxon’s dirty offshore oil; not in trucks, not through pipelines, not on its beaches. Exxon, Be Gone!
