ExxonMobil War Boycott

The March to Redeem the Soul of America was launched with press conferences and marches in Irving, Texas on April 1 and Dallas on April 2, beginning a 120-mile walk that will arrive in Crawford, Texas on Thursday, April 13. The March will participate in "Easter in Crawford" - with President Bush planning to take his usual Easter vacation at his ranch - and the celebration of the third anniversary of the Crawford Peace House.

The unifying themes of speakers on the first two days was the need for citizens to begin to get control of the combine of government and major corporations - not only to stop the Iraq war, but to protect human rights and civil liberties. The March organizers and participants are asking communities to join their calls for an end to war profiteering and an end to the occupation of Iraq.

In Irving, people gathered outside ExxonMobil's world headquarters and called on the oil giant to work to end the Iraq war and to spend $7 billion in undeserved 2005 war profits to meet human needs related to the Iraq war and ExxonMobil operations. Speaking were Nick Mottern, Director, ConusmersforPeace.org and the ExxonMobil War Boycott campaign; Rev. Roy Malveaux, Beaumont, Texas; State Rep. Lon Burnam, Fort Worth; Maureen Haver, Jumpstart Ford Campaign; Hadi Jawad, Crawford Peace House and Dallas Peace Center; Rev. Peter Johnson, Dallas civil rights leader; Margarita Alvarez, United Voices for Immigrants; Judith Kaufman; and Valley Reed, chief organizer, March to Redeem Campaign. The AP covered the press conference; it's report was published by many newspapers.

Rev. Roy Malveaux from Beaumont Texas explained how ExxonMobil has rejected any responsibility for severe health problems in his community, located next to an ExxonMobil Refinery.

Sunny Miller, Traprock Peace Center, lead the song "Step by Step" as the press conference ended and the March began with people marching past ExxonMobil's main gate.
