From the New Jersey Chapter of The Sierra Club: All Aboard! Rally Against Unsafe Oil Trains Saturday, March 7th!

Join the Coalition to Ban Unsafe Oil Trains at a rally this Saturday, March 7th in Bergen County. Because of the oil boom in the Bakken Region of North Dakota, up to thirty CSX trains carrying toxic and highly volatile crude oil passed through areas of Bergen County every week. These trains, which are up to 100 cars long, pass over the Oradell Reservoir, a source of drinking water for 750,000 people! These trains are passing through communities putting people, property, and the environment at risk!

It is time to tell our leaders - This is unacceptable! Join us to demand an immediate ban on unsafe oil trains through our community!

When: Saturday, March 7th at 2PM

Where: Old Hook Road at Schraalenburgh Rd., Closter, NJ

Park at Abram Demaree Farm. We encourage you to carpool since there is limited space for parking.

Other Details: There will be parking available at United Water on 200 Old Hook Road, Closter. We expect to walk/march to the farm on the shoulder of the road, thus crossing the RR on the way to the farm. If you like, please visit the farm owner's store before or after the event.

Come out to protect your community and your environment!

All Aboard! Rally Against Unsafe Oil Trains Saturday, March 7th!
