“Burmese Human Rights Activist Addresses Chevron” details the 2nd of 2 shareholder proposals to the oil giant in 2021 that address Climate Change, the Company’s support of a Genocidal Military Government in Myanmar, Rainforest Pollution in Ecuador, and Judicial Abuse of the Ecuadorians’ attorney Steven Donziger.

This “Special Meetings” proposal seeks to reduce the threshold for shareholders to be able to call their own meeting from 15% down to 10% – meetings where shareholders, not management, can set the agenda and control the conversation.

This is needed because Chevron’s management has harmed shareholder value by mishandling its response to Climate Change, supporting a military regime in Myanmar, and by not addressing the $9.5 billion liability incurred for polluting the Amazonian rainforest of Ecuador.

The shareholder proposals will be presented on behalf of Newground Social Investment by exiled Burmese human rights advocate Khin Ohmar.
