Hundreds Arrested at Sit-In, Thousands March on Chevron in Richmond, CA
Ryan Rising
Saturday, August 3, 2013 - 2,000 people marched in Richmond, California and over 200 people were arrested at a sit-in at the gate of Chevron's refinery. The marchers painted a large sunflower on the street in front of the gate, symbolic of the need to bioremediate the toxic pollution put out by the oil refinery. Bioremediation is a process of using biological organism, such as plants, to break down toxins and remove pollutants, such as those in soil and water. Some folks planted sunflower starts in the soil that surrounds the Chevron plant and others cast seed bombs into the petroleum company's landscaping.
