CALL UPON THE SWISS NATIONAL BANK TO VOTE AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF CHEVRON ON MAY 31st, 2017
On the basis of the anti-Chevron campaign, several Swiss organizations have launched a call to the Swiss National Bank (BNS) to request that it intervenes in the annual Assembly of Chevron Corporation in the United States on 31 May 2017 to vote in favour of climate, human rights and environmental resolutions. In two resolutions, the Ecuadorian case is also mentioned which, according to the shareholder initiators, has been mismanaged.Instead of achieving a quick, fair and global solution for the affected communities, has taken a long time and created enormous costs.
The call comes from various ranges of organizations that fight for human rights, labor rights, environmental rights, food sovereignty, the rights of indigenous peoples, the responsibility of transnational corporations, the right to health, etc. These include large platforms such as the Climate alliance, medicus mundi. We hope that this collaboration can forward the global struggle to fight climate warming and corporate impunity.
