Rally: Summer Heat Mobilization in Richmond, CA
MARCH, RALLY & NONVIOLENT DIRECT ACTION at the Chevron Refinery in Richmond, CA
As the planet lurches past the ominous milestone of 400 parts per million atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, and Big Oil continues its irresponsible pursuit of ever more and dirtier fossil carbon to pump into our air, and local refineries begin to import Canadian tar sands for processing in the Bay Area, the moment has come to stand up to the industry that is wrecking our future.
Please join 350.org, several Richmond community groups, local unions, Gathering Tribes, Urban Tilth, Asian Pacific Environmental Network and others, three days ahead of the anniversary of the Chevron refinery’s (most recent) explosion and fire, for a march and spirited rally at the refinery’s main gate.
Gather: Outside Richmond BART station (map)
Time: 10am Saturday August 3
March: From Richmond BART to Chevron refinery
Rally: Main entrance to Chevron Refinery, Point Richmond
