Everyone here hopes that what we do makes a difference to the kind of world our children will inherit.
We are unwilling to accept the kind of world Chevron is creating. We are unwilling to accept a world in which rich, powerful corporations can make decisions that kill and injure thousands. We are here to tell Chevron that the asthma rates in Richmond, California are unacceptable, that the devastation of the rainforest in Ecuador is unacceptable, that Chevron’s partnership with the Burmese military is unacceptable, that the killing of peaceful Nigerian protesters is unacceptable, that there is a human cost to Chevron’s approach to business that is unacceptable.
The representatives we sent into Chevron’s shareholder meeting should be out soon to report back to us. Until then, the Chevron entrance remains blocked by peaceful protesters.
