Yes on 87 Campaign
PR Newswire US
LOS ANGELES, CA - Aug. 22nd - PRNewswire -- In response to the oil companies' lawsuit against Proposition 87 filed today, The California Clean Energy Initiative issued this offer of settlement.
Dear Oil Company Executive:
We are writing to offer settlement of the lawsuit your agents filed against The California Clean Energy Initiative regarding the use of certain Web addresses. We will initially turn over to you the Web addresses in question provided you and your agents agree with our terms, which are as follows:
- Stop basing your campaign against Proposition 87 on junk science and fiction.
- Stop using the name "Californians Against Higher Taxes" and instead use one reflecting that the campaign against Proposition 87 is bankrolledby Chevron, Shell, Exxon Mobil, Occidental and other oil companies.
-Put the oil companies front and center in your advertising, instead of hiding behind front people and concealing the true backers of the campaign against Proposition 87: Chevron, Shell, Exxon Mobil, Occidental and other oil companies.
As a gesture of good faith and to truth in advertising, we have redesigned what people see when they visit the Web addresses mentioned in your suit. You may see the redesign at http://www.noon87.com.
We thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
