Dear Supporter,

With Chevron’s Annual General Meeting approaching next week, the company’s Annual Report has been critiqued for painting an overly ‘rosy’ picture of their operations. From Ecuador to Nigeria to Brazil to Australia to right here in Chevron's own backyard, communities the world over have suffered the impacts of Chevron's reckless pursuit of profits.

On May 29 & 30 in Berkeley and San Ramon, CA join us for a May 29 public teach-in and May 30 protest critiquing the damage inflicted by Chevron on communities the world over & offering positive alternatives.

Teach-In On The True Cost of Chevron
May 29, 2012, 6-8pm

Join members of communities from around the world that have been impacted by Chevron's reckless pursuit of profits at this teach-in on the True Cost of Chevron at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, CA. RSVP here.

99% Spring Protest Outside Chevron’s Shareholder Meeting
May 30, 2012 7-11am

On May 30th, people will travel from around the world to descend on San Ramon, CA and confront Chevron at its annual shareholder meeting. Join us for a colorful and fun rally outside Chevron’s headquarters in support of human rights, environmental, economic and climate justice, and more!
RSVP here.

Members of the True Cost of Chevron Network from Angola, Brazil, Ecuador and Nigeria will be at the Teach-In and Protest.

In the U.S., people everywhere are ready to take on corporate polluters such as Chevron. The fossil fuel industry has a habit of distorting our democracy and wrecking our planet, and Americans from coast to coast have decided that these guys don't deserve our money.

The latest polling indicates that 70% of Americans opposed federal subsidies for the fossil fuel industry -- including majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.

Interested in meeting with community members in Ecuador who won the case against Chevron for dumping billions of gallons of toxic oil in the Amazon? Travel on a Reality Tour to Ecuador.

Together we can fight corporate polluters and stand up for environmental justice.
