Monday March 19, 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. (San Ramon/Walnut Creek - Chevron headquarters):
End Chevron's Oil Crimes from Richmond to Iraq!

Chevron World Headquarters, 6001 Bollinger Canyon Road, San Ramon, CA. 0.3 miles down the Bollinger Canyon Road Exit off Hwy 680S.

Support ongoing struggles against Chevron, its contribution to global climate chaos, and its role in driving wars for oil. Contribue to stepping-up the peace movement's resistance to war through non-violent direct action, advancing a systemic analysis of oil, war, and empire, and building movements that assert our power to stop thewar ourselves, instead of just relying on a Democratic Congress or presidential candidate to do it for us. Chevron is set to become a big winner in Iraq after four long years of war to transform Iraq's oil from a system all but closed to US Corporations, to one open to US corporate control. The brain-child of the Bush Administration and US Oil companies, the new Iraqi national oil law (if passed) would radically transform Iraq's oil system and give Chevron contracts to extract and control Iraqi oil for a generation. The law goes before the Iraqi Parliament within weeks! Nonviolent Direct Action trainings scheduled for March 10 and March 18 - Details coming soon!

Chevron's World Headquarters is accessible by shuttle or bike from the Walnut Creek BART station.
Carpool/additional transportation details coming soon!

WE SAY OUT! VIGIL on the 4th anniversary of the Iraq War

Join MoveOn.org's candlelight vigil on the fourth anniversary of the war in Iraq. We will gather @ 6:45 pm. Sunset comes @ 7:21. By the time it is dark we will arrange ourselves to spell a giant OUT! for the cameras and hopefully the whole world to see.  If you can, bring a candle or flashlight. Any clothes color is fine, but light colored or white clothing will stand out better in the dark. Come and join us for this solemn wrap-up to a weekend of protests and activities, and be part of creating the image *O*U*T*!* that we hope will go out over the wires internationally.

Please sign up ASAP @

We need an accurate count of attendees as soon as possible so we will know how big to make the letters!

Spread the word!
