Taking It To The Streets
Are you angry over Richard Pombo’s moves to open the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling? Concerned about his latest plan to endanger our precious coastlines with renewed offshore drilling? Do you think his extremist anti-environmental positions might have anything to do with the huge campaign contributions that he regularly rakes in from the oil industry? Does it make you really mad?
Well, Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund is staging a rally at a Pleasanton gas station tomorrow to draw attention to Richard Pombo’s cozy relationship with Big Oil.
We will have the press show up there, and your participation can make a real difference in helping to raise awareness of Pombo's Big Oil favors for campaign contributions at the expense of ordinary folks in his district.The rally will take place at the Shell gas station on the corner of Hopyard Road and Owens Drive (by the I-580 Hopyard exit) in Pleasanton from 11:30 to 12:30 Wednesday afternoon. Ed Yoon from Defenders will be there with plenty of signs and flyers.
It is partly through your participation at earned media activities like this that we can effectively work to send Pombo packing to his ranch and help elect a pro-conservation, forward-looking candidate with a real plan for energy independence like Jerry McNerney, to Congress.
Please join in and let your voice be heard.
