Sign The Letter: Resist the Approval of the Tesoro Refinery Merger & Expansion!
More than 5,000 people marched in Wilmington in support of the People’s Climate Movement on April 29th. Thousands of us rallied at Banning Park and marched to the gates of the Tesoro refinery to call on the Air Quality Management District to refuse the mega merger and expansion of Tesoro's Wilmington Refinery.
Despite thousands of people shutting down the streets of Wilmington and demanding the rejection of this project, less than two weeks later, the regional Air Quality Management District approved the Environmental Impact Report, ignoring our health and safety, and ignoring the voices of the thousands who have submitted comments demanding a more comprehensive environmental review.
We are extremely disappointed with this decision, and we are calling on everyone to sign onto to the letter to Wayne Nastri, Executive Officer of the South Coast Air Quality Management District, to let him know that you are NOT OK with this decision!
