A group of people has demonstrated outside a Unocal oil company shareholders' meeting today (Monday) in Los Angeles.
The group -- which included Burmese-American activists -- protested the company's involvement in a billion-dollar pipeline project in Burma in the 1990s involving the alleged use of forced labor.
The Associated Press reports the protesters today (Monday) carried effigies of Unocal's chief executive, as well as an effigy representing a Burmese military officer.
Unocal is the target of an ongoing lawsuit in California seeking compensation for the alleged forced labor and abuse.
