WED, MAY 27, 7am to 10:30am
Demonstration and “Human Subvertisement”
Chevron Corporate Headquarters
6001 Bollinger Canyon Road, San Ramon, CA

Join Indigenous leaders from Ecuador, community leaders from Nigeria and climate justice, environmental justice, solidarity, antiwar, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and human rights groups to confront Chevron at its annual shareholder meeting at Chevron Corporate Global Headquarters (come on time to greet shareholders arriving at 7:30am). Celebrate the release of “The True Cost of Chevron: An Alternative Annual Report," detailing the world wide and local abuses behind Chevron's record profits and the communities organized in an unprecedented resistance movement (check it at: TrueCostofChevron.com). At the same time, supportive shareholders and impacted community and movement representatives inside the shareholder meeting will confront Chevron executives and urge shareholders to support environmental and human rights resolutions.

Join the “HUMAN SUBVERTISEMENT TEAM” and be part of our living ad theater, flipping the high-priced hypocritical Chevron “greenwash” ad campaign you may have seen. Will you join us? Send a note to: david [at] couragetoresist.org
