WHAT: Festival and Rally – 11:30am March on Chevron Refinery – 1:00pm
We are turning up the “Street Heat”
As described in "The True Cost of Chevron", instead of cleaning up their messes, reducing oil production and shifting to sustainable industries, Chevron and other Big Oil corporations are expanding their refineries, pipelines and extraction projects. Richmond and Bay Area environmental and climate justice groups are leading a precedent-setting fight against this expansion. A fierce, local grassroots campaign has been fighting Chevron’s strategies to expand their Richmond refinery.
On August 15th, stand with the environmental justice movement that has stopped Chevron’s refinery expansion in Richmond. Chevron already produces two million pounds of air pollution, water pollution, and greenhouse gases each year. The expansion would create much more greenhouse gas and toxic air pollution.
Join the growing alliance of groups and people creating “street heat” for climate justice in the lead up to the December 2009 Copenhagen Climate Talks.
