Dear Global Exchange Supporter,

At Chevron's Annual General Meeting (AGM) today in Houston, Texas, the oil giant denied access to shareholder representatives in a bid to silence the truth about its human rights and environmental impacts around the world. Five members of the True Cost of Chevron Network were arrested, including Global Exchange's Chevron Program Director, Antonia Juhasz, under the direction of the oil giant. See video of her arrest here.
Chevron's attempt to hide the truth are doomed to failure. Dozens of leaders from communities affected by Chevron are in Houston to deliver the recently released report, The True Cost of Chevron: An Alternative Annual Report, May 2010, which reveals the true cost paid for Chevron's operations in communities around the world.
Chevron's Annual Report celebrates 130 years of Chevron operations. In it, the company declares that the "values of The Chevron Way" include operating "with the highest standards of integrity and respect for human rights."
From the coalfields of Wyoming to the oil fields of Indonesia, we hear directly from those communities directly harmed by - and fighting back against - Chevron from Alabama, New Mexico, Alaska, California, Mississippi, Texas, Angola, Australia, Burma, Canada, Chad, Cameroon, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Nigeria, Philippines, Thailand, and from Iraq Veterans Against the War.
