W. Cutting Blvd & S. Garrard Blvd, Richmond map

1pm­ Nonviolent Direct Action at Chevron Refinery
841 Chevron Way, Richmond map
(Free shuttle buses will leave from Richmond BART and Point Richmond - 3rd St. and Chesley Ave - at 9:30am, 10:30 AM, 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM.)

The purpose of this action is shut the Chevron refinery down for the day, and to support community efforts to stop Chevron from expanding its refinery, which will increase pollution and cause asthma, cancer and rising death rates in surrounding communities.

Chevron is driving the war and occupation in Iraq, refining over a million barrels of stolen Iraqi oil in Richmond a month, and actively lobbying for the privatization of Iraq's oil fields so companies like Chevron can seize control of them. Join Direct Action to Stop the War (DASW), and help send a clear message to Chevron: Stop stealing Iraqi oil, and stop polluting our communities! See DASW's Chevron fact sheet for more information.
