Crucial BAAQMD Hearing on Rule 12-16 – caps on refinery emissions @ BAAQMD Offices
May 31 @ 9:30 am – 1:00 pm
The fate of Rule 12-16, which would set transparent, enforceable caps on refinery emissions—and prevent a major switch to heavier and dirtier crude oil like tar sands—could be decided at this hugely important hearing of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s Board of Directors.  Certification of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) on Rule 12-16 and a subsequent up-or-down vote by the board could well go forward if several significant problems with the EIR are not first resolved. Whether this is actually the last stand, or even the second-to-last stand, … Continued

Jun 3 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
A key to the success of the resistance in California is people from the Bay Area going to swing districts! Congressman Denham of nearby Modesto voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act (after telling his constituents he wouldn’t) and to leave millions of Americans without healthcare. Over the next two months the Senate will debate and vote on healthcare repeal, followed by a House vote on the final bill.  We need to bring the fight for affordable healthcare and accountability to the voters in areas like Modesto.

There is more than sufficient cause for alarm about the role Russian state-led hacking and information warfare played in the 2016 election, and there are crucial unanswered questions about the relationship between the Russian state and Donald Trump, his associates and his campaign. The legitimacy of the United States government may hinge on the answers to these questions. If the President was elected even in part due to collusion with a foreign effort to interfere in our democratic process, then the will of the people has been subverted. We call … Continued
