Wed Aug 27 2003 Protest at Chevron Refinery: No WTO/Troops Home Now
ChevronTexaco Refinery, Richmond :: No WTO brass_liberation_band_thumb.jpg9/9: In solidarity with actions in Cancún, México, bay area anti-WTO and anti-war activists blockaded the toxic ChevronTexaco refinery in Richmond, which is receiving and processing Iraqi crude oil under the auspices of the American occupation.
