Chevron's moving its annual shareholders' meeting from California to

polluted by the
oil giant - from Canada and Alaska to Burma and Colombia - from showing

environmental abuses. Of 27 delegates from the True Cost of Chevron
Network with valid proxy statements, only seven were allowed in; five
others were arrested.

"My people breathe their contamination every day and are constantly
sick. Our health is not for sale." - Rev. Jerome Davis of Richmond, CA.
