Standing firm to stop the alarming and perilous Benicia Valero Refinery Crude By Rail project.
Sponsored by: Benicians for a Safe and Healthy Community
The Benicia Valero Refinery has proposed a “crude-by-rail” project for 70,000 barrels per day of “North American crude” (100 rail cars per day). Valero has admitted that this would include North Dakota Bakken crude - responsible for many train derailments and explosions over the last year. Canadian Tar Sand could also become part of this scenario. Because refining extreme crudes creates more pollution than conventional crude and poses devastating safety risks; environmental, health, community organizations along with governmental agencies (such as California Attorney General’s Office) have expressed grave concerns over transporting crude-by-rail. We stand firm to this Stop Crude-By-Rail !
Please help us in raising money to educate the citizens of Benicia as to this very dangerous project that Valero is proposing. We need support with printing flyers, mailers and miscellaneous costs. Your contribution could make a world of difference to this grass roots organization of Benicia residents. Thank you!!
