Chevron is a leading war profiteer, as well as one of the biggest Bay Area polluters. Internationally, Chevron is driving the war and occupation in Iraq, refining over a million barrels of stolen Iraqi oil in Richmond a month, and actively lobbying for the privatization of Iraq's oil fields so that massive oil corporations can seize control of them. Locally, their planned refinery expansion will increase pollution and cause asthma, cancer and rising death rates, both in Richmond and in surrounding communities (as far away as 30 miles).

We will take action against Chevron on March 15th, in order to send a clear message to Chevron: Stop stealing Iraqi oil, and stop polluting our communities!

Please join us, and help take action against Chevron! Visit our website (http://bayareadirectaction.wordpress.com/march-15-actions/) to find out more about how you can get involved, or email dasw.chevron [at] gmail.com.

March 19th is the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq. All over the world, people will be taking to the streets to demand an end to the ongoing war in Iraq.

On the morning of March 19th, we will be organizing multiple direct actions at the San Francisco offices of federal agencies, corporations with military contracts in Iraq, politicians who have failed to stop the war, and foreign embassies of countries linked to the war in Iraq. (For a "menu" of these offices, please see our website (http://bayareadirectaction.wordpress.com/march-19-actions).)

We will take direct action on March 19th against as many of these locations as possible, in order to send a clear message to the economic and political decision-makers that control this country: No BUSINESS AS USUAL until all U.S. troops are withdrawn from Iraq!

Marches to direct actions targeting war profiteers will be leaving Market & Sansome throughout the day, beginning at 7:30 AM.
