SAN RAMON -- The "Occupy Wall Street" movement will be in San Ramon on Tuesday and Wednesday as protesters plan a demonstration in front of Chevron's headquarters.
MoveOn.org, a liberal political activist group, will gather from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday and from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday at 6121 Bollinger Canyon Road.
According to a MoveOn.org press release, protesters will focus on their opposition to federal subsidies of the highly profitable oil industry.
The "Occupy Wall Street" movement is a loosely defined but growing sign of discontent as protests expand in American cities among progressives who say corporations exert too much control over the economy and U.S. politics.
