No War No Warming Protest at Richmond Chevron Refinery

by ~Bradley (bradley [at]
Hundreds of people protested in Richmond on March 15th, 2008, to demand that Chevron stop stealing oil around the world while polluting our communities. The actions were in solidarity with the peoples, plants and animals of Ecuador, Nigeria, Burma, Iraq, Alberta and every other community exploited and poisoned by Chevron (Texaco, Unocal, etc!)

While hundreds of people converged on the Chevron Richmond Refinery, protests were taking place around the world against 5 years of war and occupation in Iraq, including a gathering called "Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan."

At the Winter Soldier gathering, hundreds of veterans of the two wars descended on the National Labor College in Silver Spring, Maryland to talk about what they saw, and did, in the name of America. Pacifica Radio carried the proceedings throughout the historic weekend. Why are (some) people 'surprised' that the tremendous G.I. resistance movement, specifically Winter Soldier, is being ignored by the (most) corporate media?

Protests During 5th Anniversary of US Bombing and Invasion of Iraq
March 19th, 2008 marks the five-year anniversary of the beginning of the US war and occupation of Iraq. Events will be held all over the United States to observe and protest the ongoing war and its environmental, societal, and financial tolls. The Iraq war is the second longest in U.S. history. It has killed more than one million Iraqis and 4,000 U.S. troops. The cost of the war is now running at more than $400 million per day, nearly $5,000 per second.
