Earthstrike, Global General Strike to Save the Planet,
join youth and members of frontline communities to protest Chevron’s irresponsibility. Chevron knowingly pollutes the Richmond area, the Central Valley, the Earth, and many other communities. And to no one’s suprise, our government fails to hold them responsible. Demand that Chevron gets off fossil fuels by 2025 and that they stop using their influence to lie and harm frontline communities, and the future. The march will also demand that the governor speak up about this and stop Chevron from further destroying the Earth. More details soon,
