RALLY & MARCH to the Chevron Refinery In Richmond this Saturday! 

When: Sat., Aug. 3 2013
On Saturday August 3, we will come together to challenge international corporate criminal Chevron at the gates of its Richmond, California refinery.

Summer Heat Richmond will commemorate the infamous explosion and fire of a year ago, whose toxic mushroom cloud sent 15,000 Richmond residents to emergency rooms and is still causing serious health problems.

Chevron has failed to replace the sulfur-corroded pipes that led to the explosion, and it plans to bring in yet more high-sulfur, carbon-intensive tar sands crude for refining, with serious potential impacts on Bay Area air quality.

Join this family-friendly event in saying NO WAY to tar sands and even dirtier fracked crude, and to demand a swift and just transition to a sustainable clean-energy economy.

A march through Richmond to the refinery gates will be followed by a rally featuring Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin and climate champion Bill McKibben. Along the route we will hear moving testimony from survivors of the Richmond refinery fire.
