The Strong Arm of Chevron Throttles Its Shareholding Critics

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Chevron is pursuing legal action against one of its small shareholders.

Antonia Juhasz, who runs the energy program at San Francisco-based advocacy group Global Exchange, used her 14 shares to attend the Chevron annual shareholders meeting and disrupt it. She was removed from the meeting and arrested outside after blasting Chevron’s environmental record and starting a derisive chant, according to people at the meeting.
The incident has led to the hobbling of one of the oil company’s most vocal critics. Ms. Juhasz said she now must limit what she says publicly about the company for fear of hindering her defense.
