Three Council members and Environmental Groups to Demand Trump Administration to Stand Down on San Diego Offshore Oil Drilling While Candidate for District 2 to Protest Republican’s Involvement

Councilmembers David Alvarez, Barbara Bry and Lorie Zapf join together with environmental leaders will rally in a protest today, Monday, January 29th and make the case for San Diego to be removed from the Administration’s list of potential oil drilling sites released by the Department of the Interior on January 4.

The protest and news conference will be at Spanish Landing Park – East, at 3900 N. Harbor Drive, across from the airport at Noon.

Meanwhile, at least one candidate for the upcoming June Primary for City council seats will also be present to protest the lone Republican among the councilmembers holding the rally. Candidate Bryan Pease, a Democrat, will be holding his own news conference to protest, he says, Zapf’s lack of environmental credentials.

There will be another protest against offshore drilling on Feb. 3rd. in Mission Beach

Hands Across the Sand: San Diego’s Voice Matters, a rally against the latest offshore drilling proposal, will take place 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3 at Belmont Park in Mission Beach.

Oceana, Greenpeace, Sierra Club, and SanDiego350, along with elected officials and members of the community, will voice their response to the Trump Administration’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management proposal to drill off nearly all U.S. coastline; and also protest that there is only one scheduled public hearing on the plan in Sacramento.

After the presentations, attendees will join hands on the beach to spell out “No Oil” for a photo that will be sent to the Trump Administration.  San Diego Community News Group
