Demonstration at Chevron Shareholder Meeting

Wednesday, May 29, 2013
7:30 AM - 7:30 PM
Event Type:
Location Details:
6001 Bollinger Canyon Rd, San Ramon, California

Join Amazon Watch, the True Cost of Chevron Coalition and a growing network of human rights advocates, environmentalists, and front-line communities (see list of partners below) at a protest outside of Chevron's annual shareholder meeting.

The annual meeting, held at Chevron's global headquarters, is a rare and significant opportunity to refocus public attention on some of the terribly harmful human and environmental abuses of Chevron nationally and internationally. CEO John S. Watson will be present as well as other top executives.

In opposition, Servio Curipoma, a cacao farmer from the Ecuadorian Amazon, will also be present to demand justice from ChevronTexaco responsible for damages done while drilling in Ecuador from 1964-1990. Servio lost both his parents and his sister-in-law to cancer that doctors attributed to drinking water contaminated by toxic crude. For atrocities such as this, an Ecuadorian court as ordered Chevron to pay 19 billion in reparations to Amazonian residents. Chevron no longer have assets in Ecuador, and CEO John Watson refuses to pay.

The public rally begins at 7:30. People will be arriving by airplane carpool, public transportation, bike, and their own two feet from Richmond to the Ecuadorian Amazon. Bring visuals, your voice, and any other multimedia.

We gather at 7:30am and will hold a demonstration till 11:30am.

This year like no the year in the history of the Human race, we need to get out of our cars for the defense of our Mother Earth (Pacha Mama). The scientific record shows that we have put 400 parts per million of Carbon Dioxide not seen since in 2 million years. The NGO of is standing for a level at 350 parts per million for a healthy or highest level without severe consequences (ie. Global Warming - biggest tornado). We are hoping that will join the 9-11 Stop Driving campaign but they are funded by Big Corporations. Please see details @
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
