Anti-Chevron Day 2022 in Richmond, CA

By Peter Mencini, et. al. - Amazon Watch, May 31, 2023

On May 21, 2022, Amazon Watch joined a powerful rally outside Chevron’s notoriously dangerous Richmond, CA refinery to join in solidarity with our Richmond neighbors and refinery workers, along with 1000 Grandmothers Bay Area, Youth Vs. Apocalypse, Amazon Watch, Asian Pacific Environmental Network, Direct Action Everywhere, Extinction Rebellion SF Bay, Idle No More SF Bay, Sunflower Alliance, Stand.Earth, Sunrise Bay Area, East Bay DSA, and the Richmond Progressive Alliance. The event, which included many from the Burmese-American community, included messages of solidarity from affected communities in Ecuador, Nigeria, and Australia. Once again, communities around the world united to send a message to Chevron’s management only days before its shareholder meeting: Clean up your act, and stop profiting off the destruction of communities and the environment.
