WE WILL PROTEST THE CHEVRON SHAREHOLDER MEETING.
WILL YOU JOIN US?

Tell Chevron Executives and Shareholders:
CLEAN UP YOUR ACT, NOT YOUR IMAGE!
DEMAND AN END TO CHEVRON’S HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES, WAR PROFITEERING, CLIMATE CHAOS, & TOXIC POLLUTION!

WED, MAY 27, 7am to 10:30am
Demonstration and Subvertisement Theater
Chevron Corporate Headquarters
6001 Bollinger Canyon Road, San Ramon, CA

Bay Area climate justice, environmental justice, solidarity, antiwar, and human rights groups will join together to confront Chevron at its annual shareholder meeting at the gates of Chevron World Corporate Headquarters (please come on time so we can greet the shareholders who arrive by 7:30am) and to release “The True Cost of Chevron: An Alternative Annual Report," detailing the world wide and local abuses behind Chevron's record profits and the communities organized in an unprecedented resistance movement. At the same time, supportive shareholders and impacted community and movement representatives inside the shareholder meeting will confront Chevron executives and urge shareholders to support environmental and human rights resolutions.

Join the “CHEVRON SUBVERTISEMENT TEAM” and be part of our living ad theater, flipping the high-priced hypocritical Chevron “greenwash” ad campaign you may have seen. Will you join us? Send a note to: david [at] couragetoresist.org
