Photos: CA Coastal Commission hearing on seismic testing

A message and photos from Abe Perlstein Stereo Photography

Dear COAST Alliance members and friends of the oceans,

I’m so proud of our activists’ collective dedication, determination and subsequent victory in convincing the California Coastal Commission to flatly deny PG&E’s permit to move ahead on murderous ocean blasting off the California Central Coast.

Here’s a selection of photos from both the Tidelands Park music fest and events surrounding yesterday’s California Coastal Commission hearing at the Santa Monica Civic. I’ll eventually get around to posting on the C.O.A.S.T. Alliance Facebook page, though that’ll have to wait a few days as I erred in having clicked on an offer supposedly enabling me to swap the regular blue Facebook theme to other colors. By doing so, an evil software extension glommed onto and disabled my Chrome browser, posted the same scam to every one of my Facebook friends’ walls (sorry, folks), and downloaded malicious software onto my hard drive. Because Facebook blocked me from posting anything for a few days, for the time being, please enjoy these pix in an email.
