Richmond 09.08.03

bay area activists rallied, marched and held a direct action in Richmond, in solidarity with those taking part in actions in Cancun, Mexico.

This afternoon's action focused on the Chevron-Texaco refinery in Richmond. Chevron-Texaco is taking and processing Iraqi crude oil.

Despite a heavy police presence during the march and the direct action, people did not let down, and the mood was calm and joyful.

About 50+ police officers and sheriff deputies guarded the truck entrace to the refinery- with emt and a fire rescue crew standing by, while 22 demonstrators linked arms or used lockboxes to blockade the entrance to the refinery.

After a few hours, the protest ended peacefully.
