Chevron out of Burma &
Stop fueling brutal dictatorship immediately!!
Say No to Burma's regime greatest enabler, Chevron of California
Protest at the Chevron Share Holders Meeting on WED, MAY 27, 2009, 7am to 10:30am
Chevron's pipeline is Burma's military lifeline as it provides much-needed $$$ to the regime to purchase arms from China to keep stranglehold on the people. Along with the scarce and much-needed GAS that belongs to the people, the pipeline take away the very livelihood of the people of Burma by effectively fueling the brutal dictatorship for decades.
Burma Freedom supporters and Bay Area climate justice, environmental justice, solidarity, antiwar, and human rights groups will join together to confront Chevron at their annual shareholder meeting at the gates of Chevron Corporate Headquarters (please come on time so we can greet the shareholders who arrive by 7:30am) to raise awareness about Chevron's involvement in Burma.
Tell Chevron Executives and Shareholders:
GET OUT OF BURMA,
CLEAN UP YOUR ACT, NOT YOUR IMAGE!
DEMAND AN END TO CHEVRONíS HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES, WAR PROFITEERING, CLIMATE CHAOS, & TOXIC POLLUTION!
WED, MAY 27, 7am to 10:30am

Please make signs: Chevron Out of Burma; Chevron: Burmese Blood on your hand; Chevron Prospers, Burmese Suffer; Chevron Pipe line = Burma Dictator's Life Line; Chevron: Your wealth is our Blood; Chevron Gains, Burma's Pain
WHY: Chevron Corp. of San Ramon (formerly Unocal), a California oil corporation, is involved in a joint-venture with Burmaís brutal and repressive military regime. The military maintains its stranglehold on Burmaís people with weapons bought with foreign currency gained from natural gas sale to Thailand through Chevron's pipeline, the regime's lifeline. While the electricity is scarce in Burma, the regime pockets hundreds of millions annually. As the world has witnessed repeatedly in recent years, soldiers and military thugs have been crushing the pro-democracy protests. Many activists and monks have been disrobed, beaten, humiliated, tortured, and killed. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is still under house arrest and 2,000 pro democracy monks and activists are being held in inhumane conditions in Burmese prisons.
To stop the military dictatorship in Burma, we must stop the Chevron involvement in Burma.
