Chevron RALLY & Direct Action: Richmond Point Part II
As of 6:30pm today 30 people await arrest for blocking the Chevron Refinery following a rally, march and direct non-violent action.
Protesters report that Chevron shipments were limited/halted today by the protest...BIG SUCCESS! (as reported on KTVU channel 2 6pm news)
Chevron responded with "we were prepared for the demonstrators", not saying much more.
See part I of this report for details on Chevron's many misdeeds.
Sing-along with the Raging Grannies on Stage
*Roll Back the Barrels*
tune: Roll Out the Barrel
Roll back the barrels
Living with Chevron's no fun
More air pollution
RICHMOND MUST NOT BE THE ONE
Chevron's abuses are WRONG
No expansion, no pollution
We won't go along!
Breathing more sulfur
Watching our children get sick
Asthma and cancer
Corrupting the feds is their trick
We need protection
CLEAN AIR IS OUR HUMAN RIGHT
Tell them the buck stops in Richmond
We will stand and fight!
Tune: Roll Out the Barrels
Raging Grannies helped shut down Romic in East Palo Alto, with protests at OSHA and in the local city council. We won't stop until we achieve the same victory in Richmond!
Thanks for lending grannies a helpful hand and the shout out from the stage!
Save Our Library!
Watching all the excitement with notebook in hand,this National Lawyers Guild volunteer legal observer saw the police and marchers race back and forth in different directions. Along with the Raging Grannies trying to get to the Direct Action site, we scratched our respective heads in wonder...
Pollution = Asthma and Cancer!
