Chevron's moving its annual shareholders' meeting from California to
Houston didn't stop activists from the international communities long
polluted by the

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.
