Marchers promise a ‘human oil slick’

By
From page A4 | July 07, 2013 |

“Separation of Oil & State: Follow the Money,” a march that examines the connections between government and oil lobbyists, will take place at noon Thursday in downtown Sacramento. Organizers from 350 Sacramento and Stop Fooling CA will create a “human oil slick” to raise awareness about the impact of the oil lobby on government.

Those who want to car-pool from Davis should email Milton Kalish at milton@miltonkalish.com.

Oil industry lobbyists spent more than $25.5 million lobbying last year just in California. According to Oil Change International, the oil industry receives between $10 billion and $50 billion in government subsidies every year.

The march is in spirit with the nationwide “Summer Heat” campaign against the fossil fuel industry sponsored by 350.org. It will start at the north steps of the state Capitol at noon Thursday and move as a human oil slick past oil lobbyists’ offices and the federal building. Participants are encouraged to wear black hats or bring black umbrellas.
