The explosion and fire at the Chevron Richmond refinery is a man made disaster for the workers and community in Richmond and the East Bay. It was caused by the criminal negligence of the Chevron corporation which did not want to replace a worn gas pipe to save more money for the corporation. They continually violate the environmental regulation and rules as well as OSHA rules and yet there are no serious actions taken against them by these agencies and both the California government and US government.
This is for a company that made $26.9 billion last year.

The continuing contamination with 30% of the children of Richmond having Asthma and many other diseases is unacceptable and an outrage to me and that is why I and Roseann Barr are calling for the immediate seizure and nationalization of the Chevron refinery and other oil companies and for them to be run by workers and for the community and people of California. This is not only a problem at Chevron but the many other refineries in California and the US.

We the people of the United States cannot be terrorized by these outfits like Chevron who pollute the world and then terrorize people in the United States by their refusal to do proper maintenance on the refineries here in the bay area and throughout the United States.

We support that the profits from a nationalized refinery be immediately put to use to prevent further accidents, for the establishment of free healthcare for the people of Richmond and and for the funding of education for the children of Richmond.
We are also calling for the criminal prosecution of Chevron managers, executives and owners for putting the residents and workers in deadly danger and causing illness through their drive for profit.

We support a major program of the development of alternative energy sources including solar which should be required on all new construction in the California and the US and a massive government funded program for all housing in the state and the country along with mass transportation to limit the use of oil for automobiles.

We also condemn the silence of Governor Brown and the Obama administration about these continuing man made disasters and the refusal to call for the criminal prosecution of these corporations.

In California Governor Brown has put the OSHA health and safety inspectors on furloughs even though they are not paid for by the state budget and the 182 inspectors are not enough to properly protect the 18 million workers
of California.

On Labor Day September 3, I will be joining labor and community and environmental activists at the Chevron Refinery to in Richmond to call for the refinery to be nationalized and for it to be run by the workers for the benefit of the workers and

We cannot afford another Chevron disaster. Enough is Enough.
