Then: After the rally we encourage you to go to the San Francisco Federal courthouse at 450 Golden Gate, 19th floor Courtroom 10 to quietly and peacefully observe the proceedings brought by Nigerian villagers against Chevron from 1:30-3:30pm starting on October 27 and every day of the trial. (Monday through Thursday 8:30-3:30) Please note: This is NOT a “silent protest” it’s simply an act to show your support for the Nigerian plaintiffs with your presence.
