February 14, 2020 VALENTINE RALLY to Close Down SoCal Gas Underground Storage Operation and Oppose Industrial Bulldozing of Ballona & Senator Holly Mitchell Speaks Out
Protestors rally to defend Ballona Wetlands and its wildlife from a catastrophic bulldozing Plan being promoted by the California Department of Fish & Wildlife & Army Corps of Engineers, in an attempt to convert the predominantly freshwater wetland into a full tidal bay. Protestors also argue that SOCALGAS underground gas storage operations, under the wetlands and surrounding communities are acknowledged by California officials, including the Governor as dangerous and need to be SHUT DOWN. The Plan would assist SOCALGAS/PLAYA DEL REY continued operations.

The out-gassing is near the public Fresh Water Marsh foot-path of the catch-basin, located near the intersection of Lincoln Blvd. and Jefferson Blvd. in Ballona Wetlands.
