liberalism is a disease is a registered user.
"Chevron seeks to engage in positive, constructive dialogue with its stakeholders." Unfortunately, the protestors have no interest in conducting an adult conversation to air their complaints. They will scream, block traffic, impede businesses from working and generally act like spoiled children to attempt to extort more money from the golden goose that keeps a large number of Richmond's residents employed.
Gayle McLaughlin didn't like the way democracy worked during the last election cycle, so now she's applying the same tactic she claims Chevron is responsible for---influencing elections. Gotta love those leftist hypocrites.....................

The oil company was in Richmond way before all the homes were built. People that purchase homes near Chevron knew Chevron was there. People need to take responsibility for their own actions. Just wait till Chevron moves out and back to Texas see what you people have to say when there are no jobs. It's a give and take.

If you don't have enough money to be a chevron stakeholder well then you shouldn't expect to have voice re Richmond's politics and environmental woes. Tough toenails for you!
If you don't have enough money to buy off local politicians well then tough luck for you!
Money talks! That's democracy.
