Critical Mass and March for the Health and Safety of Workers, the Community, and Environment

12:30 – Rally at PGE

1:00 PM – Critical Mass to Richmond BART

3:00 PM – March from Richmond BART to Chevron

Chevron and PG&E’s lack of transparency and ignorance are a threat to the health and safety of workers, the community, and the environment.

PG&E had a pipeline explosion in 2010 that killed 8 people and destroyed 38 homes. It was proven that they spiked gas pipeline pressure 10% over the legal, and only inspected corrosion but not welds, complete documentation is missing for about a quarter of its 1,800-plus pipeline miles, and many other health and safety issues.

Chevron had a major fire almost 2 years ago after they clearly neglected the pipes corroding ignoring warnings from workers and inspectors for over a decade. This fire almost killed 14 refinery workers and sent 30,000 people to seek medical treatment because of air pollution
