U.S. energy major Chevron said it had filed a civil lawsuit against protesters in Poland who have prevented it from reaching a site where it plans to explore for shale gas. Local people occupied the site near the village of Zurawlow, about 160 miles southeast of the Polish capital, when contractors started trying to erect a fence. We believe that the views expressed by a small group of people do not reflect views of the majority of residents", in the region around the site, Chevron said in a statement.
