Alamedans experienced an oil spill in the fall of last year (which affected several dozens birds), and some Island residents are getting out on Tuesday, June 8, to give their support to those affected by the oil that has been spewing for the past few weeks in the Gulf olf Mexico.
At 7 p.m., members of MoveOn.org will host a vigil at City Hall to recognize the 50th day of the disaster affecting the Gulf and Gulf Coast residents.
They are also using the event to encourage the community to consider ways that can lessen our use of fossil fuels.
Some speakers will read news and stories from Gulf Coast community members.
A moment of silence will be observed.
