anti-oil train protest in Tulsa, Sat July 12th

'Oil by Rail' National Awareness Week

date and time:  Saturday July 12th, 2014 @ 6pm

location: Event location will be at the South East corner of Elgin and Archer, the corner gate entrance to ONEOK Field in downtown Tulsa. See you there.

Since the hazard from these oil trains is not well known, we need signs  that educate with one of the following messages:

1.  No Exploding Oil Trains in Tulsa  

2.  Bakken shale oil: EXTRA EXPLOSIVE  

3.  DOT-111 tank cars are not safe!  

4.  Leave Bakken shale oil in the ground!    

5. Exploding trains: Could your town be next?

Please plan to attend even if you cannot make a sign. There will be signs available to hold.

Sponsor: Clean Energy Future OK  --  www,CEFOK.org

Train explodes accidientally, when DOT-111 tanker car carrying Bakken crude (highly explosive) was punctured, during a derailment, in Lynchburg VA, 30th April 2014, one of many such 'bomb trains' in recent months. Could your town be next?
