Protect the Water - Join Idle No More SF Bay to say NO TAR SANDS IN OUR BAY! Save April 9th for the next action at BAAQMD! 

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued a permit to the Phillips 66 Refinery for the Refinery Expansion Project. This is the first part of a project leading the refinery to process more Alberta tar sands and bring in over 93 oil tankers a year filled with tar sands (also called oil sands or dilbit). Tar sands are impossible to completely clean up when accidents occur (https://insideclimatenews.org/news/09122015/unique-hazards-tar-sands-oil-spills-dilbit-diluted-bitumen-confirmed-national-academies-of-science-kalamazoo-river-enbridge).

The issuing of the permit came as a complete surprise. The groups working on stopping this permit had no idea that a DEIR had been put out for public comment which resulted in the only comment coming from Phillips 66.

Oil tankers spill. This would be a disaster in our beautiful bay. Join your Indigenous water protectors and land defenders to protect and defend the Bay!
