The day after a major fire at the Richmond, California Chevron refinery hundreds of residents and working people attended a meeting on August 6, 2012 about the fire, the causes of the fire and the health affects on the community and workers. The meeting took place on August 7, 2012. Angry residents protested the continued toxic releases and continued contamination of the workers and community which has led to asthma and cancers. Some people called for the nationalization of the refinery and the energy industry in order to protect health and safety of the workers and community as well as to reduce the use of oil and other toxic energy sources. One of the issues also addressed was the use of over 1200 workers by contractors from outside the state to make repairs in the plant and the potential dangers from outsourcing to non-union and out of state subcontractor to do the repair work in the refinery.
