Title: Demonstration at Chevron Shareholder Meeting
START DATE: Wednesday May 29
TIME: 7:30 AM - 7:30 PM
Location Details:
6001 Bollinger Canyon Rd, San Ramon, California
Event Type: Protest
Join Amazon Watch, the True Cost of Chevron Coalition and a growing network of human rights advocates, environmentalists, and front-line communities (see list of partners below) at a protest outside of Chevron's annual shareholder meeting.

The annual meeting, held at Chevron's global headquarters, is a rare and significant opportunity to refocus public attention on some of the terribly harmful human and environmental abuses of Chevron nationally and internationally. CEO John S. Watson will be present as well as other top executives.

In opposition, Servio Curipoma, a cacao farmer from the Ecuadorian Amazon, will also be present to demand justice from ChevronTexaco responsible for damages done while drilling in Ecuador from 1964-1990. Servio lost both his parents and his sister-in-law to cancer that doctors attributed to drinking water contaminated by toxic crude. For atrocities such as this, an Ecuadorian court as ordered Chevron to pay 19 billion in reparations to Amazonian residents. Chevron no longer have assets in Ecuador, and CEO John Watson refuses to pay.

The public rally begins at 7:30. People will be arriving by airplane carpool, public transportation, bike, and their own two feet from Richmond to the Ecuadorian Amazon. Bring visuals, your voice, and any other multimedia.

We gather at 7:30am and will hold a demonstration till 11:30am.
