Public meeting on offshore oil expansion draws angry coastal activists

Hosted by

Hundreds of protesters gathered at the state capitol building in Sacramento yesterday, to speak out against the Trump Administration’s plan to expand oil and gas drilling in federal waters. Thursday marked the first - and only - public comment meeting scheduled by the Federal Government in the Golden State. Over a dozen oil rigs already dot our coastline along the Central Coast. Could there be more to come?
