San Ramon, California (WiredPRNews.com) –The Chief Executive officer of Chevron Corporation, David O’Reilly, had to face a severe tirade of the environmentalists who were quite angry about the environment abuse activities of the Chevron Corporation in countries of Nigeria, Myanmar, and Ecuador.
There were also protests outside the premises of the Chevron Corp and the agitators were donning white suits holding broom-shaped signs that had the slogan “Clean Up Chevron” written up on them. The agitators had gathered at the front gate entrance of the headquarters of the Chevron Corporation located in the San Ramon region of California.
The environmentalists were quite angry with the actions of the Chevron Corporation and had chosen the right opportunity of the annual shareholders’ meeting of the company to express their objections. Despite facing such an enormous amount of verbal agitation, Chevron shareholders have very severely discarded the formulation of six resolutions suggested by environmentalists about formulation of novel company policies on environmental protection laws and protection of human rights.
In the South American country of Ecuador, Chevron is suffering a multi billion dollar lawsuit filed by a large number of jungle inhabitants and the indigenous tribe of Indians totaling 30,000. These localities have accused that the corporation did not bother to remove the mess created by up billion gallons of poisonous wastewater produced by the Texaco Petroleum Co, a subsidiary of Chevron acquired by it in 2001.
