10 Nov. 2001, Richmond, Calif. – As Chevron executives luxuriate in the comparitively safe, clean environs of San Ramon, the Bay Area anti-WTO movement and local residents will pay a visit to the belly of the beast: the Chevron refinery in Richmond. 12 p.m.: March from Richmond BART; 2 p.m.: Festival of resistance at Chevron refinery. Don't forget your gas mask/respirator!

Based in San Ramon, Calif., Chevron Products Co. is one of the largest refiners and marketers of petroleum products in the United States. With six refineries and 7,900 retail outlets, it serves customers in 29 states – primarily in the West, Southwest and South. It is also one of the top three asphalt sellers in the nation, a product supplied by two additional asphalt refineries in Willbridge, Ore., and Perth Amboy, N.J.

Chevron Product's three largest refineries – in Pascagoula, Miss. and the California cities of Richmond and El Segundo – are complex and highly "efficient" facilities, each a strong competitor in its respective region. The West Coast refineries are configured to reliably produce large volumes of high-value gasoline and diesel fuels designed to meet the air "quality" needs of the California market. The company's three smaller refineries – on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, in El Paso, Texas and Salt Lake City, Utah – are positioned to take advantage of growing niche markets.

Chevron leads the way in:

Today, as the WTO meets in Qatar, the local resistance movement will visit Chevron's Richmond refinery to demand global justice, not environmental racism and war.
