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. Despite a heavy police presence during the march and direct action, the mood was calm and joyful as 22 demonstrators linked arms and used lockboxes to blockade the truck entrance to the refinery.
