Mon Mar 12 2007 (Updated 03/26/07) 4 Years of War for Oil -- Enough! Basta!
On the morning of March 19th a nonviolent direct action took place at Chevron World Headquarters, 6001 Bollinger Canyon Road in San Ramon. Protesters demanded an end to Chevron's oil crimes from Richmond to Iraq, saying "No blood for oil! Climate justice now! and Stop war, end empire!" About 100 people participated, from locking themselves to "oil" barrels in order to block one entrance to Chevron's headquarters to participating in street theater.

Organizers say, "Chevron poisons local communities from Richmond, to Ecuador and Nigeria. The Chevron refinery in Richmond spews... toxins into the air, water, and land, including cancer-causing dioxins, on the largely African American, South East Asian, and Latino communities. The refinery and plant have had hundreds of accidents, including fires, spills, leaks, explosions, toxic gas releases, flaring, and air contaminations causing severe illness, including asthma and deadly cancers, for the people of Richmond. The people of Richmond are fighting back and demanding that Chevron clean up or get out. We need to imagine a world without Chevron, its oil, and its climate chaos." Read more
