Chevron's moving its annual shareholders' meeting from California to
Houston didn't stop activists from the international communities long
polluted by the
oil giant - from Canada and Alaska to Burma and Colombia - from showing
up to protest
the company's human rights and
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.
