Oct 9 Day of Action Against Chevron

Today is the Day of Protest against American oil giant Chevron. Chevron joins the ranks of France's Total SA and South Korea's Daewoo as the biggest investors in Burma's bountiful oil and gas deposits.

SIGN Earthrights International's PETITION urging Chevron to use its influence to help stop the crackdown, and to stop investing in Burma HERE.



We will be holding the CHEVRON PROTEST through FAX and PHONE calls on TUESDAY October 9th from 1:00pm-3:00pm Pacific Time (9:00pm-11pm GMT).

Chevron pays millions of dollars in oil and gas royalties to the current military junta. We will demand that they put these royalties in escrow for the legitimate, elected government of Burma headed by Aung San Suu Kyi. These monies are being pocketed by the military leaders - it is not their money.

HERE is the contact info for each Chevron office throughout the world.
We will be calling the California Headquarters office from 9pm-11pm GMT -- 1-3pm US Pacific Time

You should also call your local Chevron office at 1-3pm your local time if you are outside the US/Canada/Mexico

When you call or fax ask for David O'Reilly, the CEO, to register your concern and protest Chevron's activity in Burma and ask that they put the royalty money in escrow for the elected government of Burma.
The company is holding an investor update at 2pm local time so this is the perfect window of time to call.

Find Chevron's contact information for your country HERE.
