March in Oakland for Real Climate Leadership

Over 8000 Californians marched in Oakland for real climate leadership on Saturday, February 7th, 2015 with the message that fracking (hydraulic fracturing) is not safe for communities in California or wise if we are to mitigate the effects of climate change. This was the largest anti-fracking focused march in the history of the US.

Members of 350 Santa Cruz attended the event, lead by energized organizer Pauline who organized for a bus to transport folks from Santa Cruz to Oakland and back in climate-friendly fashion. Thank you and well done Pauline. March organizers wanted to send a message to the governor of California, Jerry Brown, that real climate leadership is needed and that fracking should not be a part of his adminstration's energy policy for California.
