“California politicians are letting the oil industry ruin lives in places like Wilmington right now, and they’re giving the same industry free reign to lock future generations into climate catastrophe,” Fonda said. “This is the crisis right here in California, and it’s only going to get worse if people aren’t empowered to demand change from politicians who don’t seem to get it.”
Activists say Fire Drill Friday protests, which first launched in October, will be held “until the crisis ends.”MORE NEWS: 22-Year-Old Man Stabbed To Death In Gardena
