Add comment on:Chevron protest in Richmond, 2008
On March 15, 2008, a large group of ~500 gathered to protest the Chevron corporation in Richmond. There are a long list of reasons why people object to the business practices of Chevron, not the least of which is the level of pollution and high rate of accidents which has caused high asthma and disease rates in Richmond, leaving it as the most impoverished community in the region. The refineries are the reason only poor people with few alternatives tend to live on this side of the bay, across the bridge from affluent Marin county.
