    • More than 200 people — led by environmental activist Erin Brockovich — marched to Shell’s oil refinery in Carson, CA on Saturday to protest the company’s refusal to take responsibility for the contamination of a tract in the Carousel neighborhood, where high levels of benzene and methane have been found in the ground.
