SIT IN to Demand Brown STAND UP to Big Oil

Join a non-violent direct action in Sacramento to insist that Governor Jerry Brown ban fracking and neighborhood drilling to protect our communities.

Californians have delivered well over 1 million petitions to Governor Brown calling on him to stand up to the oil industry, and held many rallies and press conferences. Health forums have explained the toxic effects of extreme oil and neighborhood drilling. Brown has received consistent reminders that the majority of Californians and the science DO NOT support fracking and neighborhood drilling.

Brown has never acknowledged these demands. Instead, he has cultivated close ties to big oil, taken money from industry, and cut oil industry-friendly deals around critical policies and regulations, while people continue to be exposed to known carcinogens in their own homes and as drilling expands.

Governor Jerry Brown wants to be remembered as a climate leader, but the reality is that he has already failed the test of real leadership. August 20 Californians will travel to Sacrament to take non-violent direct action to declare a day of reckoning and demand that Governor Brown stand up to big oil. They will insist that Brown

  • stop issuing new permits for oil drilling in California
  • commit our state to a managed decline of fossil fuel production
  • beginning with 2,500 ft setback limits to protect frontline communities from toxic oil and gas drilling
  • as part of a just and equitable transition away from fossil fuels.
