Richmond, California is home to one of the largest oil refineries on the West Coast of the US. For many years, Chevron controlled municipal politics. But now a coalition of community and labour groups in Richmond has succeeded in raising minimum wage, challenging evictions and demanding fair taxation from Big Oil and Big Soda. Steve Early is a lawyer and labour activist. He’s author of Refinery Town: Big Oil, Big Money and the Remaking of an American City.
