This is the week when corporations hold their shareholders meetings, and for progressive investors around the country, it is a chance to introduce resolutions calling for corporate responsibility. At the Chevron meeting, Amy Goodman got the chance to interview some of the Chevron shareholders, as well as activists from Richmond, California, site of a Chevron oil refinery that recently exploded. The activists were speaking on behalf of shareholders that introduced a resolution requiring Chevron to publicize the quantities of certain toxic substances released by their facilities, such as the cancer-causing chemical dioxin.
