TODAY, February 20, 1-3pm
Join the Covid-Safe Rally/March to
Stop Costco's Mega Gas Station
Building new gas stations anywhere is a bad idea.
Building a 28-pump mega gas station next to Novato's vital wetlands
is a really, really bad idea.
Join organizers from 350 Marin, Sustainable Novato, and Green Novato
to stop Costco's plans.
At our peaceful protest, wearing a face mask and 6-foot social distancing will be required.
The rally convenes at 1pm at the Rowland Park-n-Ride, just off Hwy 101 in Novato.
Write to Novato City Council.
Tell them why you're opposed to a mega gas station at Costco.
Remind them of their November 10, 2020, pledge: "the City of Novato and the Novato City Council will continue to advocate for and join in a climate mobilization at the local, state, national, and global levels in supporting emergency efforts to mitigate climate change."
Drive slowly into the Park-n-Ride. There is only one narrow entrance for vehicles. Go slow and make sure you're entering the lot, not re-entering the freeway.
The walking route to Costco is less than a mile. Keep in mind you can march back the same way — definitely more visibility.
Scheduled speakers include:
Judy Arnold, Supervisor, County of Marin District 5
Barbara Clifton Zarate, White Buffalo Woman
Lily Cohen, 350 Marin
Carleen Cullen, Founder, Cool the Earth
Chance Cutrano, Resource Renewal Institute
Cecilia Osborn, School of Environmental Leadership
Kevin Morrison, Green Novato
