Witness and Protest at Chevron Refinery

Photos by Luke Hauser

On March 15, 2008, approximately seven hundred of people took part in a march, rally, and nonviolent direct action protesting Chevron's involvement in everything from global warming to the United States' ongoing war in Iraq.

The action was organized by Direct Action to Stop War.

After a rally featuring local speakers, poets, and musicians, the crowd marched through Point Richmond to the Chevron refinery.




While hundreds of protesters blocked the road outside Chevron, others performed music and skits.

The Brass Liberation Orchestra enlivened an overcast day.

Dozens of people took part in a blockade of the entrance, including this group using lockdown devices and props.

When the police refused to arrest protesters in the street, blockaders moved onto Chevron property.

Late in the afternoon, two dozen blockaders were arrested.
